Critic Reviews for Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or Sitting Bull's History Lesson
It's a sometimes self-indulgent, confused, ambitious movie that is often very funny and always fascinating.
Aspires to a cynical Brechtian snappiness, but the drama is too thinly imagined, the meanings too familiar and heavily stated, for this 1976 film to gather any real interest.
While not one of Altman's strongest films, this cynical tale merits a look as a meditation on American history, mythmaking, and showbusiness
Altman and crew have done the necessary reorganizing and reediting on Buffalo Bill and have created a terrific movie out of the troubled dust of what was. The first time I saw the movie in New York, it was explicit, contrived, and needed a lot of help.
Audience Reviews for Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or Sitting Bull's History Lesson
A simple, minor, funny and entretaining piece of art.
Though a minor work, Newman is hilarious in the role and Altman paints another vivid picture.
In the same off-beat comedy style as Robert Altman's M*A*S*H*.
