Freeland does reveal their omnipresent struggle to preserve identity, tradition and pride within a culture and a value system marginalized by the rest of the country.
Freeland's conventional yet credible portrait of identity crises on the reservation covers familiar ground (alcoholism, poverty) while warmly exploring contemporary issues rarely filmed within the diverse community.
The performances here are generally unrefined, with most of the actors-including Wilson and Moore-barely going beyond rote line readings.
"Rather than dispel stereotypes [about Native Americans], Freeland spins them into moving human drama, achieving a delicate balancing act between heartbreaking realism and sincere optimism."
At most times, the movie feels quite intimate and honest.
The screenplay tracing the characters' struggles has a tidy, workshopped feel, and the dialogue and acting can be gratingly flat.
Overall, it's a goodhearted movie that you want to root for.
Infuses a familiar tale of small-town life and youthful disaffection with a crisp sense of hope teased out of Navajo tradition.
Drunktown's Finest oscillates between servicing banal plot machinations and the beautiful, symbolic simplicity of the culture it's representing.
I was enlightened by Drunktown's Finest ... and found it an impressive debut feature.
Director Sydney Freeland makes a wobbly debut with three loosely interwoven stories of Native American struggle.
