Writing, writing, writing. A story worth telling is told exceptionally well. Don’t take just my word for it: Smoke Signals opened at 1998’s Sundance Film Festival where it garnered the prestigious Audience Award and Filmmakers' Trophy. It is the first feature film written, directed, co-produced and acted entirely by American Indians. A buddy road movie at heart, Smoke Signals follows the journey of two Native Americans from their reservation in Idaho to Phoenix. I can’t classify it strictly as a drama (though it has plenty of excellent dramatic moments) or as a comedy (though it’s laugh-out-loud hilarious in places) but must point out that rare indeed is the film that can succeed at both of them (and move from humorous situation to serious with such effectiveness). It’s wonderfully performed and superbly executed utilizing effective flashbacks (with perfectly cast children as the leads' younger selves)and a top notch cast. Evan Adams is amazing as Joseph. You may have to hunt to find a theatre showing Smoke Signals, but your effort will be rewarded.

10-point scale rating: 9

"Smoke Singals" is a smart movie directored by Robert Heath and its about two American Indians on a journey. The film is brilliantly written and directed and the film's refreshing from an American Indian's point of view.
