      dave d Incredibly moving slow-paced film that feels so authentic, at times, it comes off as a documentary. Chief Dave Bald Eagle plays Dan, an elder hoping to use an author to correct the record on how the Native Americans have been treated. The film was adapted from Kent Nerburn's novel of the same name. The acting is stiff, as is the filmmaking, however the messages messages delivered ring so true. It can't be said enough that we were barbaric in our treatment of Native Americans. We should all be ashamed. At the worst it's a good film, but at it's best it could be a life altering moral. Final Score: 8/10 Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Jan O Very interesting perspective. I've always felt the NA was treated terribly. I enjoyed seeing this from their perspective. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/30/20 Full Review Audience Member Incredible story! This movie had such an impact on me. The acting was superb and the filmmaking incredible especially given the small budget. You need to watch this film! You won't be disappointed.

      Tim Cogshell FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) A really lovely, thoughtful movie. Sep 16, 2019 Full Review Yolanda Machado TheWrap There's far too many moments where the script demands that Kent remind everyone "not all white men" that any appearance of care or understanding is quickly wiped away. Sep 13, 2019 Full Review Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter While this effort from filmmaker Steven Lewis Simpson is somewhat lacking in technical polish, it boasts an undeniable emotional power and authenticity. Sep 10, 2019 Full Review Catherine Capellaro Isthmus (Madison, WI) The presence of [David William Beautiful] Bald Eagle, sadly, isn't enough to save this movie. It's just enough to make me sad that I wasn't seeing a documentary about his life. Nov 22, 2019 Full Review Bradley Gibson Film Threat the film pays off extravagantly, and, also like Nerburn, you'll be sad when your time with Dan and his extended family is over, and you've been sent back to your regular life. Sep 23, 2019 Full Review Douglas Davidson Elements of Madness In many ways, the hubris and folly of the [Founding] Fathers are placed under high scrutiny in writer/director Steven Lewis Simpson's (A Thunder-Being Nation) Neither Wolf Nor Dog, an adaptation of the novel by Kent Nerburn.
