I am no Siskel and Ebert, but I really like this movie. Smoke Signals, written by Sherman Alexie, I've read a couple of his books, I love they way he uses language, he paints a picture.
One of my favorite lines from this move goes something like this," my boy could fly, like some kind of indigenous angel, only his wings were made of t.v. dinner trays..."
Basically this movie is a quest, but I love journey movies and books, or I guess they are called coming of age, what ever, I liked it.
Victor on the left in the picture and Thomas on the right , are on their way to Arizona to pick up Victors dads ashes. The story is told in a series of flash backs ,why Victors dad left, why Victor and Thomas have the connection they do. It's funny, its sad and as I said before the language is poetic at times.
If you watch it let me know what you think!
