||A movie about spirit and humor of our people|
Smoke Signals is based on the story by "Sherman Alexie" and his novel Loneranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven" It is a great relflection to those like myself who have grown up on the reservation and knows what it means to be Native American. Smoke Signals DVD for sale The story is great with colorful characters and hilarious situations. Directed by Chris Eyre (Skinwalkers) he uses a style of telling the story like Rodriguez did in "El Mariachi" or Spielberg in the "Color Purple" To others, you may not understand the humor at times. But for us, it is a great feeling that we can tell beautiful stories that others can share. If you like this, here are others you should look up: Dance Me Outside, Skinwalkers, The Dark Wind, Thunderheart, and Running Brave.

Smoke Signals movie I love this movie because it shows the actual truth about our rez lives today. Today not much of our aboriginal truths are told as it should be.

||Great indie film|
Smoke Signals video This movie deals a lot with identity and forgiveness. Sometimes we only see the bad in people; sometimes only the good. Sometimes two people can look at an individual and feel two completely different ways about him. The two main characters are very different, but they work well together. This movie gives a feel for the native american way of life - both humorous and tragic at times. I definitely plan on buying this movie, it's that good!

||Life on the Res|
Smoke Signals film This film manages to combine deep tradegy and humor very well. It had me in stiches with lines like 'You should look more stoical - as if you've just killed a bufallo. ' Which produces the reponse,'But my people are fishermen. ' And the girls so poor they drive with their car stuck in reverse gear. Or the Res weather forecast that just describes the shape of the clouds. There are real issues about employment, Indian-Identitiy, health, drunkeness and so on behind the humor - but you never feel that you're being preached at.

||I Can Watch This Over and Over Again|
Smoke Signals review My daughter and i went to see it at the movie theatre, and we fell in love, with the movie, it was funny and sad and it kept you interested in what was going to happen next. It should be brought back to the big screen again.
