Reel Injun does a decent job of contextualising the role of the “Injun”, or stereotypical Aboriginal North American, through the last century of cinema.

Drawing interviews from the likes of Clint Eastwood, Adam Beech, and Sacheen Littlefeather (who talks, finally, about her Oscar moment), Diamond takes us on a road trip through America, seeking the voices of those represented often as the “bad guys” on screen.

At its heart this is a well made, provocative made-for-television documentary, a mix of movie clips and talking head interviews.
