Set in Kansas during the early 1900s, a teen-aged Native American boy is taken from his family and forced to attend a distant Indian "training" school to assimilate into White society. When he escapes to return to his family, Sam Franklin, a bounty hunter of Cherokee descent, is hired to find and return him to the institution. Franklin, a former Indian scout for the U.S. Army, has renounced his Native heritage and has adopted the White Man's way of life, believing it's the only way for Indians to survive. Along the way, a tragic incident spurs Franklin's longtime nemesis, the famous "Indian Fighter" Sheriff Henry McCoy, to pursue both Franklin and the boy.

Nadia C (mx) wrote: Such a wonderful movie. I just don't know how to express how grateful I am that people like Dian Fossey existed and maybe there is still someone like her out there. She's an example of how people should treat animals. They are sensitive as we are. I was shocked to learn about the atrocities committed by those heartless people against the gorillas. I was so mad when they killed Dian's favorite, I would had done the same she did or even worse..

Jose M (br) wrote: Wolfen, a werewolf film from 1981 is not only a horror film, but it manages to mix and symbolize political thriller with Native American folklore. Wolfen is definitely a smart horror fiilm that has characters and audience members thinking. What is interesting the way the film set up and the way it develops as it goes on. It never tries to go over the top with silliness or special effects from lyncanthrope, but it does have a lot of gore. The film takes some time to get into, but once you are pass that, you are solid. Performances are well done especially from Albert Finney and anyone that is around him. The dialogue is intellectual, serious, and humorous. Wolfen is definitely a great werewolf film along with its contemporary rivals An American Werewolf in London (comedy) and The Howling (satire/culture). Director and co-writer Michael Wadleigh wanted to bring more into the table and he suceeded. I will have to think a little bit more about this film to get it if the ending was not the thesis afterall.
Antonius B (fr) wrote: Set in 1725 Japan, and made in 1967, isn't it interesting that this film reveals so many universal truths? Difficulties in marriage. The feeling in middle-age that comes when looking back at decisions and events in one's life. The need to stand up for what's right, despite a world that sometimes crushes us so unfairly. At the same time, the movie is distinctly Japanese. There are so many great shots from Director Masaki Kobayashi and cinematographer Kazuo Yamada, including such harmonious placement of people and objects in 'small' moments, that they're almost as if they were Zen rock gardens of their own. There are also of course the big scenes, such as the epic samurai showdown as the wind blows through the wild grass, which is amazing. Toshiro Mifune turns in a memorable performance, and leads an excellent cast. The soundtrack, with music provided by T?ru Takemitsu, fits the scenes and emotions beautifully. There is an undercurrent of defiance running through the movie, from Mifune's outspoken wife (Michiko tsuka) to his son (Go Kato) and daughter-in-law (Yoko Tsukasa) clinging to one another despite cruelty from the local feudal lord. Mifune is calm as he braces for battle exclaims "I, in all my life, have never felt more alive than I do now", and we feel for the honor, for the rightness, of what he's about to do. Great film.

"Aelita" mixes sci-fi, romance, comedy, propaganda and drama, achieving truly comical results in a wonderful mess of a movie. This is what happens when the revolution goes too far, cinema-wise!
