The unavoidable synopsis -- two young American Indians leave the reservation to resolve their problems and to find themselves -- belies the poetry of this well-acted, well-directed and largehearted movie. Written and produced by Sherman Alexie as an adaptation of his book The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven.
...best film ever made that captures the real character and spirit of modern Native Americans.John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
It was shocking to realize that as late as 1998, this was still one of the few movies made by insiders, written, directed, and acted by Native Americans. The father-son narrative is conventional but it has humor and is well acted.Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
