It is the best film I have ever used in class as a learning vehicle for writing, critical thinking skills and class participation. The students absolutely love the film as it has a bit of everything in it--war, romance, action, Native Amercian culture (with respect), the environment (pristine landscape) soaring music, stirring climax, thoughtful conclusion, terrific acting. Sounds like a top endorsement, eh?
I really love it when students who are not normally stars in a "routine" class discover that they can analyze a film and discuss it with insight in from of their peers. I never know which new student stars will emerge.
Even today, 2018, I consider this film timeless and relevant.
