      "Black Robe", 1991. A Jesuit priest traveling among the Hurons in the 1600's. A well done,beautiful film. As a friend of mine said, " It was Dances with Wolves without a case of the cutes." "Jerimiah Johnson" and "Deliverance" still rate highly with me.

     Many good documentary-type films. "Ice Age Columbus", "Before We Ruled the Earth",a couple of really good documentaries on "Utzi" the iceman.

Just watched "Ten Canoes" a movie set in Australia before European contact. I can't say enough good things about it.

One I like it's "Ice world", a Discovery Channel documentary concerning three people living 24,000 years ago in England during the last ice age

The one on the Ice Age Columbus had some interesting info, but a lot of excited hyperbole ("the edges of their stone tools were 100 times sharper than modern steel blades!"), and it suffered from glamour casting (paleo babes, LOL, how 1,000,000 Years BC!) and finally, the scene where they were eating "scurvy grass" (which is a real plant and doesn't look like grass at all) was pretty bad. You'd think somebody would have caught that.

But the flaked point in Virginia from 17,000 years ago is fascinating.
