The following is a link to an interview we did that aired Sunday, July 29th on New York’s most listened to radio station (3.5 million listeners weekly) Q104.3 FM and a quote from our first critical review with movie crtic/radio host Shelli Sonstein.
“I commend you on “West of Thunder…it’s a really unusual movie …with an interesting twist. There is a spiritual voice in this movie that I had not heard before or seen before in a movie, so it’s really done in a creative way. It reminds us of our history and it also reminds us of the reality of today for the Lakota…very educational…”

“New York’s most listened to station”
“West of Thunder is a triumph of moral confrontation, surprising in its sure footed march, eventually penetrating the toughest skull in order to find that vestigial organ, the conscience. Finding a new way to describe the way our history has been and is accommodated is a remarkable feat. West of Thunder takes the United States of America, kicking and screaming, into the house of mirrors, and forces it to see history. Dan Davies brings an excellent performance to the piece. His presence has the weight of Rodin’s Balzac; he is imperturbable, implacable. And the sparingly used sense of relish of his power gives the film balance and, yes, humor.”
