Neglected Movies: Meek's Cutoff



Well, this movie led to an Abbott dispute. I found it mesmerizing. Phil found it boring. Very little happens and the ending is abrupt and vague. Based on a true story, it tells the tale of a small group of pioneers heading for Oregon with a guide named Meek who convinces them he knows the way. When they appear lost, they have to choose between picking an Indian who's been hanging around as their new guide or sticking with Meek. Michelle Williams has the biggest role but all of the cast serve it well. directed it.

I haven't seen MEEK'S CUTOFF, but I suspect my reaction to the film would be more like Phil's.

George, trust me, it would. We gave up after 15 minutes. Boring!
