Brotherhood of the Wolf. I realize this is three movies in a row that are somehow related to Native Americans or the Old West, but that's merely a coincidence.
A lot of people hated this film. Coming out a few months following the breathtaking visuals of the Matrix, it's no wonder. But where the Matrix was a jaw-dropping, surrealistic trip (the first two times), Brotherhood is like a well-rehearsed, synchronized ballet.
A weird post-revolutionary French ballet with ass-kicking Native American Indians and a lion from the Serengeti, but somehow... for me... it works.
That's about all there is to say on that matter.
Complimentary Film: Twelve Monkeys (think about it)
