Little Big Man

This is one of my absolute favorite classics of all times, even though there may not be any deep spiritual lessons in it, unless you consider the truthful version of something that's been sold quite differently as "history" a spiritual virtue worth spending a little time and effort on. But Little Big Man is certainly no ordinary history feature, but rather a dramedy of the best kind, a movie that can make you laugh (because as a comedy, it's a master piece) and weep over the great "conquests" of the white man that practically extinguished a whole culture, and maybe over the fact that he hasn't learned a darn thing since, if you look around.
