  • Summary: Winnipeg, Manitoba, has one of the world's largest aboriginal populations. In this gritty and often emotionally violent feature, activist-filmmaker Gonick partnered with celebrated cinematographer Ed Lachman to vividly dramatize the explosive underbelly of that Canadian city's Native community. Stryker, a fourteen-year-old fugitive arsonist from the Brokenhead First Nation reserve, becomes a pawn in the ongoing war between the Indian Posse and the Asian Bomb Squad.

    Slapdash but strangely likeable.
  2. The mostly unprofessional cast does a lot of shouting and swearing, and Mr. Henry's face has a haunting impassivity, but the film does not offer much in the way of social insight or credible emotion.
  3. The dead-end social points Gonick is making are so blunt they're hardly points at all anymore, but the galleon anchor that's weighing down this well-intentioned homey is the amateur acting.
