BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED KNEE follows in the footsteps of fellow high-quality HBO productions such as DEADWOOD. The action begins at Little Big Horn with the Sioux triumph over General Custer, and then continues by following three key figures from the battle. The production stars Adam Beach, August Schellenberg, Aidan Quinn, and Anna Paquin.
What happened at Wounded Knee is the crowning nightmare in a catalog of infamies done to the Native Americans. I wanted to be angry after watching this, maybe even choked up a bit. No dice. Perhaps the most affecting moment in the movie is a closing title saying the Sioux have never to this date taken a dime for the Black Hills, implying that they're still doin' the Ghost Dance, waiting for the White man to destroy himself (won't be long) so they can just move back in.
