"You ever notice how you never see John Wayne's teeth?"
You know, when I was growing up, I always wanted to be Native American.Maybe that's why I liked this movie so much.
Smoke Signals is the story of two young Coeur d'Alene Indians, Thomas and Victor, who grew up on a reservation in Idaho. Victor is the strong, silent type, who tries to coach the less than intimidating Thomas in 'looking more like a real Indian' including a warrior glare. When Victor hears that his father, who took off when he was 12, has died, he has to go and sort out the affairs, but he doesn't have the money. Thomas offers to help out financially - if Victor will let him come along.
This movie had some wonderful cinemetography including seamless flashbacks and travel scenes. It's based on Sherman Alexie's book "The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven". Alexie also wrote the screenplay.I'd definately say rent this movie. It made my night.
