Rating:
R
Thunderheart is a 1992 mystery film starring Val Kilmer as Ray Levoi, an FBI agent whose latest assignment investigating a murder on a Native American reservation creates conflict between the job he loves and his own part-Sioux heritage he has tried so hard to ignore. Levoi has a bright future ahead of him with the FBI. He's a smart and ambitious agent capable of rising quickly through the ranks. His father, an alcoholic half-blooded Sioux, turned Ray off to his ancestry. Because of his disapproval of his father, he's always felt he had more in common with white society and the American government. All that might change, however, when he's assigned to investigate a politically-motivated killing on a reservation. While he may want to side with the government, his detective skills begin revealing unsavory truths about the oppression of the Native Americans on the reservation. Graham Greene co-stars as the wise local cop Walter Crow Horse, and Sheila Tousey appears as Maggie Eagle Bear, a beautiful school teacher who attracts the affections of Ray Levoi. Thunderheart is a tense and gripping film about a murder mystery surrounded by complicated issues of cultural oppression.moreless
