I’ve studied native American lore and culture quite a bit having a little blood in me. The Rez provided a facet of light into the stress brought to a people engulfed by a culture which goes out of its way to demean, marginalize, patronize and dispirit them.

One item to look at might be the character of Simon. I realize you may want his motivations to initially prove enigmatic, but there needs to be, perhaps, greater clarity regarding his motivations in the end

No, but then I take the view that nothing is original, everything is just a new take on an... read
A review of Moonkinderby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 02/21/2014Some suggestions: Title page need not say "An original Screenplay" FADE IN: is missing. CONTINUED at top and bottom of page is not needed. Some questions: Tura-T appears to be a main character due to the magnitude of his entrance. It would appear TITAN is the antagonist, therefore are they cooperating in that the planets are mined first and then destructed? Where is the... read
