Dave Kehr
The New York Times
Might have been better off as a documentary, with less of Mr. Eyre's uninspired dramatics and more of his sense of observation and outrage. Full Review
David Rooney
Has a patched-together feel, and its aims as human drama, social documentary and vigilante movie are never quite reconciled. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Its strength is the documentary-textured depiction of Native Americans in their social environment. Its weakness is a story that's a patchy combination of soap opera, low-tech magic realism and, at times, ploddingly sociological commentary. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Graham Greene ("Dances With Wolves") in one of the year's best performances, he's a fully dimensional character: pathetic and shrewd, tragic and bitterly funny. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Eyre offers a merciless, affecting portrait of reservation life, but his relevant themes eventually wash away in a sea of unnecessary sentimentality. Full Review
