Neither Wolf Nor Dog

Neither Wolf Nor Dog

Based on the nonfiction novel by Kent Nerburn, this tiny indie follows writer Kent Nerburn (Christopher Sweeney) to a Lakota reservation in South Dakota to interview a smiling but inscrutable Native American elder named Dan (Chief Dave Bald Eagle). Dan wants Neburn to turn his collection of wise ramblings into a book, but the white guy has got a long way to go in order to understand where our 95-year-old Indian is coming from. What follows is a slow and rather simple road trip through modern Indian country. But director Steven Lewis Simpson (A Thunder-Being Nation, Rez Bomb) knows the settings, and our two main characters have a witty back-and-forth—which keeps this talky history lesson from becoming too depressing. FULL REVIEW: Roadtrip through Lakota country is slow but sincere in its message by Devin D. O’Leary (9/7/2017). 110 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 9/8)
