Critic Reviews for Broken Rainbow
If a documentary cannot convince us of its basic journalistic accuracy, then it is just opinion and polemic, and the material might have been treated more effectively as fiction.
The Navajo case, as presented here, is forceful enough not to require foolish embellishment.
Audience Reviews for Broken Rainbow
This documentary chronicles the numerous broken treaties that have crushed Native American culture and destroyed their homeland. First, I guess I have to say that I agree with this film's thesis: the U.S. government has fucked over the Native Americans and we as Americans are complicit in anti-Native injustices. That said, this film sucks. Its presentation of this thesis is bland, repetitive, and maudlin with a repeating song that might as well be a broken record over the broken rainbow. Overall, agreeing with a film isn't all it takes to make a good film.
Oh, I remember this one!!
