Laramie Movie Scope

While most of the acting was good, some of it was amateurish.

Like Smoke Signals, the film is also imbued with strong themes of familial ties and spirituality that are powerful and moving without stooping to base melodrama

Skins is a wrenching, uncompromisingly bleak film, but its stars ... fill the screen with warmth, humor and spiritual yearning in the face of hardship and tragedy.

Rather quickly, the film falls into a soothing formula of brotherly conflict and reconciliation.

Whatever Eyre's failings as a dramatist, he deserves credit for bringing audiences into this hard and bitter place.

Director Chris Eyre is going through the paces again with his usual high melodramatic style of filmmaking.

Though the aboriginal aspect lends the ending an extraordinary poignancy, and the story itself could be played out in any working class community in the nation.

It lacks the compassion, good-natured humor and the level of insight that made [Eyre's] first film something of a sleeper success.

Thanks to strong performances by Schweig and Greene, the results are powerful and heartbreaking.

There's a certain raggedness and preachiness to the picture, but ultimately its simplicity and basic integrity shine through and compensate for the flaws.

Despite all of its good intentions, Skins remains only skin deep.

Eric Schweig and Graham Greene both exude an air of dignity that's perfect for the proud warrior that still lingers in the souls of these characters.

It's a haunting indictment of a situation that has by and large been swept under the rug by Americans -- a stirring look at one man's impotent rage.

Long Island Press

A craving for social order and logic where there may be little or none, and lost in a sea of white values and imposed authority irrelevant to Indian pain.

To see this movie is to understand why the faces on Mount Rushmore are so painful and galling to the first Americans.

All-in-all, the film is an enjoyable and frankly told tale of a people who live among us, but not necessarily with us.

Like Rudy Yellow Lodge, Eyre needs to take a good sweat to clarify his cinematic vision before his next creation and remember the lessons of the trickster spider.

'Like a child with an important message to tell...[Skins'] faults are easy to forgive because the intentions are lofty.'

Although mainstream American movies tend to exploit the familiar, every once in a while a film arrives from the margin that gives viewers a chance to learn, to grow, to travel.
