Skins

Chris Eyre follows up his charming debut Smoke Signals with this dark family drama. Eric Schweig and Graham Green play a pair of brothers on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Younger brother Rudy has escaped the violence and alcoholism of his youth to become a tribal police officer, but older brother Mogie has not been so lucky and now finds himself embroiled in a touchy murder case. Eyre is certainly earnest in his goals, Green turns in a fabulous performance (as always) and there is some sharp-tongued social commentary here. But the story tends toward the melodramatic and the overall film feels less polished than Smoke Signals. 84 minutes
