Screenjunkies.com is a fun site about movies, and the lists they generate can be fun — “10 Best Assassination Movies” or “7 Monster Hunter Movies Every Man Should Watch.”
But when this one showed up on our radar, we weren’t sure what to think:
From the text:
Fighting against the powerful stupidity of racism are these stories and characters that refuse to wallow in a mire of stereotypes by displaying their humanity, be it good or evil.
That’s a commendable premise, but many ICTMN readers will no doubt feel it’s undermined by the idea that any of these films will “tomahawk” anything.
Still, get past the unfortunate framing and there is the list itself:
- The Burrowers
- Reel Injun
- The Last of the Mohicans
- Black Robe
What do you think about these picks — “tomahawking” aside, is this a good list of affecting movies about American Indians, or would you have chosen differently?
