Two men struggle to define who they are and what path they will take in this artful, gritty and unforgettable portrait of life on the White Earth Indian Reservation in northwestern Minnesota. Terrence Malick, Chris Eyre and Natalie Portman present this sometimes troubling, sometimes transcendent vision of life on the edge.

De Palma

A young reporter (Jennifer Salt) witnesses a murder from afar, but cannot prove it. The truth is more grim than she imagines… Sisters has a grand guignol conceit but it’s not really a horror movie - rather it’s a witty mystery suspense thriller drawing from Rear Window and Psycho. Ironically through Hitchcockian pastiche De Palma found his own voice as a filmmaker. Even at this early stage includes extraordinarily adept use of split screen, lengthy travelling shots, and an operatic "Eye of God" storytelling sense - or if you prefer, a deeply twisted sense of humour.
