|Title:||The Dark Wind|
|08.11.07||Netflix|| This one was pure curiosity on my part. Nobody said it was particularly good, but I wanted to see what a fiction Errol Morris movie looked like. The answer: like every other fiction movie.|
Lou Diamond Phillips plays a native american cop on Indian land following a mystery based on a Tony Hillerman book. ALthough Phillips' channeling of a navajo basically means he talks softly, he's surrounded by other people I enjoy like Fred Ward and Gary Farmer (the Indian from Dead Man). The story is what it is... it's a pretty slow but alright movie to watch on the couch late at night when you don't feel like doing anything else (i.e. it didn't have commercial breaks).
IMDb says Morris didn't finish the film due to disputes with EP Robert Redford. That may explain the music and the voice over and a bit of the pacing, but it's still a pretty pedestrian movie. curiosity sated.
