HOLY WHISTLIN' DANCIN' JESUS! I like it ! QUESTION? How does that little jumped-up white bread trust fund baby claim to tell who belongs to which nation? I've got Amerin blood and relatives and I wouldn't dare such an arrogant presumption!

A native indian detective mystery dated back when pagers were still used. Slow paced. The mystery was unique (not predictable.) Cinematography better than watching APTN channel. The story needed to flow faster & maybe reduce the number of character stories intertwined to make this a better movie. Salt & peppered Peter Fonda cameo. Bonus Material offers a mini documentary on real facts that inspired the book.

The Redfords took Tony Hillerman's well written story, and made it and the characters almost unrecognizable. Big disappointment.

Robert Redford was co-executive producer of this made-for-PBS-TV murder mystery. Aside from this fact, I didn't find anything remarkable about it--except perhaps that it's set on a reservation & its cast includes an unusually high proportion of North American natives from different tribal backgrounds, all pretending to be Navajos.
