Intriguing, then, but defiantly slow and awkward. Full Review

An alternately infuriating and exhilarating example of the Western as an art film. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Too often, the mystical mise-en-scene and strange doings are left to speak for themselves, as though Shepard hopes that his film will be assumed to be profound because it is incomprehensible. Full Review

The atmosphere is potent, and it's impressively shot, but there's also a terrible lack of cohesion that makes the film's desperate reach for meaningfulness look increasingly laboured. Full Review

...Eerie, inventive, poetic....Uncompromisingly good...

Rating: 2/4 -- Something deep and allegorical could be going on here, but Silent Tongue is at once so overwrought and desert-dull that you can't be bothered to investigate. Full Review
Philadelphia Inquirer

Rating: 3/4 -- A strangely satisfying and challenging piece of work, one that illustrates how elements of cinema, literature and theater can work in tandem, thanks to a recipe that is one part Poe and two parts Shakespeare. Full Review

Product Description:

A surreal western directed by playwright/actor Sam Shepard. Taking place on the desolate untamed Llano Estacado in 1873, a young half-Native American is stolen from her drunken white father by desperate cowboy, Prescott Roe, who wants her for his grief-stricken son, Talbot, whose wife has died. With the father and his son in hot pursuit, Roe brings the woman to his son, who must reconcile the past with the present before accepting the beautiful half-breed.

Plot Synopsis:

When a young man is lost in grief over the death of his Indian bride, his father sets out across the prairies of the Old West to find the only person he believes can break the evil spell - the girl's sister.
