Hollywood has an impressive track record, one that spans more than 4,000 films, of blatantly misrepresenting Native people and their cultures. Featuring interviews with filmmakers and activists such as Clint Eastwood, Jim Jarmusch and Russell Means, Reel Injun delves into the fascinating history of the Hollywood Indian with razor-sharp insight and humor, tracing its checkered cinematic evolution from the silent film era to today.

Surprisingly good. This isn't the usual guilt-trip about how Indians are sacred & magic & blah blah. This is more real-life & honest.

An excellent study of how media creates culture prejudices. Ending on a very positive note, this documentary highlights other films that I look forward to seeing: The Outlaw Josey Wales, Smoke Signals, and Fast Runner. I am excited for the future of the film industry as we will see more than a Hollywood or Disney perspective. We will see cultures rediscovering themselves. And those are the kind of films that people will pay to see.
