what a stupid film!!
A friend told me this was a must see because I was a River Phoenix fan. Yuuucccckkkkk!! What a stupid film!! It really made no sense at all.

He loses his love (a beautiful Indian girl) and instead of burying her, he keeps her and stays with her body. Through baking heat of the sun, through rainstorms, day, night, day, night, day, night,.....GROSS! He doesn't say a word through it all. No real emotion. FINALLY at the end of the film, an Indian spirit persuades him to let her go. This is a horrible last role for him to have. Also, I can't believe that Sam Shepard actually wanted this to be his directing debut! All I can say is what a waste of talent in this load of c**p.

Stay far away from this one!!
