    The dual point of view is used effectively, though it's less valid as social criticism (where Penn's observations tend toward facile revisionism) than as an index of the uncertainty that characterizes most of Penn's heroes.

    Arthur Penn's Little Big Man is an endlessly entertaining attempt to spin an epic in the form of a yarn.

    Episodic western with a great performance from Hoffman.
