      Audience Member havent seen this one Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member A raw and very real portrayal of the drug and gang culture which is present not only in Minnesota but in the far reaches of Native America as well. However, the title itself is misleading. The seventh fire and the seventh generation sum up a movement and prophecy within the ojibwe culture about revilatization of culture, well-being of the earth & all life. The film portrayed indigenous life as we've seen portrayed in T.V and film since Buffalo Bill; helpless and unredemable. With a title such as "The Seventh Fire" I expected much more.

      Noel Murray AV Club [A] short but unforgettable debut documentary, which contrasts the lives of two Minnesota drug dealers-one grizzled, one young-as a way of exploring the larger social problem of Native American gangs. Dec 1, 2016 Full Review J. R. Jones Chicago Reader Riccobono creates a credible panorama of modern small-town America. Aug 4, 2016 Full Review Noel Murray Los Angeles Times By tackling the larger issue of Native American gangs through the story of two northwest Minnesota drug dealers, Riccobono personalizes a problem that deserves more attention. Jul 28, 2016 Full Review James Wegg JWR If only this prophecy could come true Rated: 4/5 Feb 13, 2017 Full Review Robert Roten Laramie Movie Scope This is a harrowing, effective film about life on the reservation. It pulls no punches and offers no solutions, easy or otherwise. The only demand it makes of us is that we pay attention to what is going on here. Rated: B Feb 7, 2017 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film Despite the drama, the film is slow and struggles to find a clear voice. Rated: 2.5/5 Nov 11, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
