Neither Wolf Nor Dog

Dir. Steven Lewis Simpson. USA, 2016. 1h 50m. Sioux/subs. Starring Dave Bald Eagle, Christopher Sweeney, Richard Ray Whitman, Roseanne Supernault, Tatanka Means, Zahn McClarnon.

A white American author is summoned by a Lakota Elder who asks him to write a book about his life. After a blundering false start, he is all but kidnapped and taken on a road trip through the heart of the Native American landscape. Based on a best-selling Native American novel, the film revolves around a remarkable performance from Lakota Elder Dave Bald Eagle, who was 95-years-old during filming.

‘Drifting tantalisingly like a Native American variation on David Lynch's The Straight Story, this poignant insight into the legacy of centuries of racist brutality reaches a shattering climax at the site of the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee…’ David Parkinson, Radio Times
