Critic Reviews for Trudell
Combines a minimum of critical distance and a maximum of gratuitous flash.
Rae's reluctance to delve into more complex, personal or specific territory -- with anecdotes, for example -- limits viewer involvement.
[John] Trudell is the compelling presence at the heart of Trudell, Heather Rae's fascinating but superficial treatment of the poet, singer and tilter-at-windmills who has been at the barricades from the get-go.
By preaching so relentlessly to the choir, this film misses an opportunity to show what got them to sing in the first place.
Despite the rambling finish, however, overall the film is a thought-provoking and graceful portrait of a tenacious peace warrior whose frankness is his greatest weapon.
How could a movie about someone with one of the nation's longest FBI files be this dull?
Audience Reviews for Trudell
Great little doc about Native American poet/activist John Trudell. A truly amazing journey if you're willing to take it. Includes a lot of Trudell's work; excerpts, clips, reels, and history of the man's life and tragedies.
