EXTREMELY IMPORTANT DOCUMENTARY

October 17, 2021
EVERYONE INVOLVED IN MAKING THIS MOVIE SHOULD BE COMMENDED FOR REMINDING PEOPLE OF HOW CLOSE WE CAME TO LOSING THE MUSTANG POPULATION. I PARTICULARLY ENJOYED THE CLIP FROM "THE MISFITS" (ALTHOUGH I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO HAVE SEEN A LONGER CLIP) I THINK THAT IT WAS THE BEST FILM THAT JOHN HUSTON EVER DIRECTED. (I ALSO THOUGHT THAT MARILYN MONROE AND CLARK GABLE GAVE THE BEST PERFORMANCES OF THEIR CAREERS IN THAT FILM). THE ONLY DRAWBACK IS THAT IT BEGAN WITH A REFERENCE TO THE LAKOTA THAT TENDED TO ROMANTICIZE THEM. IN REAL LIFE, THE LAKOKOTA WERE KNOWN TO BE VERY BRUTAL TOWARDS THE CHIPPEWAS. IN FACT, THE REASON THAT THE LAKOTA WERE ONCE CALLED "SIOUX" WAS BECAUSE IT WAS THE CHIPPEWA WORD FOR "CUTTHROAT. "
