Storyline

Last Of The Dogmen, A Montana bounty hunter is sent into the wilderness to track three escaped prisoners. Instead he sees something that puzzles him. Later with a female Native Indian history professor, he returns to find some answers.

Under-rated: Good script, good performances, beautiful cinematography

 

Last Of The Dogmen, HG Wells once recommended that writers of ‘fantastic fiction’ choose to break only one rule per story, to avoid stretching their readers willful suspension of disbelief to breaking. _Last of the Dogmen_ proves how well a story based on an implausible premise (traditional Cheyenne surviving in the mountains with their culture intact) can work if everything else is kept real. The action is realistic, and the characters are drawn honestly and allowed to behave in a natural, realistic manner.

As others have pointed out, it’s a quiet little story as these stories go, and it’s also one of Berenger’s better performances; I feel as though I should bird-dog this director, because all the principles turn in good, nuanced work.

I recommend this movie as light or even moderate fare, with something for both romantics and adventurers.

(Curiously, as far as I can recall, the title is never explained in the film. ‘Cheyenne’ is a French corruption of a Blackfoot or Arikara word meaning “dog people”, for the dogs the Cheyenne once used in preference to horses to haul their household goods between camps. The leading Cheyenne warrior society eventually adopted the name “dog men” or “dog soldiers” in defiance. The survivors depicted here would be the descendents of a dog soldier group and their families.)

Completely and Utterly Magical

 
Last Of The Dogmen, This is a great movie! I’ve got to say it again: This is a great movie! I’ve never liked cowboy or Indian pictures, but this movie realisticly sets up a fantastic but simple premise that there are Indians still living in the wilderness. Tom Berringer discovers them with the help of Barbera Hershey while the sheriff played by Kurtwood Smith is looking for him. Smith, by the way, is now probably best known as the no-nonsense father on “That 70s Show.” I also have to mention the dog who seems to get a lot of his own scenes. The Indians superficially look authentic and believable as does their history which is so grounded and set up before hand that they could almost be real. The scenery is probably the biggest star as much of the locales and views are too breath-taking to be real. This movie would have had Academy Award written all over it had it been released theatrically. This movie just goes to prove that Hollywood big shots really don’t know what they are doing.
