Reviewer Ed Farolan

Majewski´s latest film contrasts the Navajo lore with the ultra-modern, high-tech world of multi-billionaires. Malkovich plays the role of a reclusive trillionaire and his would-be biographer (Josh Hartnett). The director expressed his vision of America, saying to Variety magazine, “I don’t know whether there is another place in the world that has this kind of absolute opposite sides.”

It´s a good movie. It just needs to be edited a bit for its length. Although it received average reviews, I think the message is clear, that in this world we live in, there are the very rich who don´t know what to do with their money, and the very poor struggling to survive.
