The 1995 slice of Native Canadian life was a landmark ensemble piece that opened eyes to life on the modern reserve.

i loved this movie from the start. got it on vhs as soon as it was released. every year since i started collecting dvds, i have searched this title. FINALLY, it is out on dvd and i don't have to run off a copy from my vhs, plus it has wonderful extras!

ryan black and rest of the cast do a great job presenting 'the rez' in the present. as a story about two guys trying to get off 'the rez' by going to school on scholarship (to be mechanics), it shows how hard it is to even try!

and after watching this darker movie, try the slightly lighter side, by getting the series, 'the rez', also starring ryan black, which is both funny and depressing at the same time.

I'm a (non-Indian)racial minority who usually likes to see a political message in "ethnic" movies. This isn't really an "ethnic movie," though. "Dance Me Outside" is an indie comedy-drama about 90's life on an Ontario rez, with a mostly Native cast, but it is lovable by Americans of many different cultural backgrounds. It is also by all accounts one of the best movies I have ever seen. There are an (unfortunately small) handful of subversive movies referencing the colonial experience which shock us/force us out of our "cultural relativism comfort zone." Such movies {e.g. "Clearcut," "The Battle of Algiers,") shock us because they reflect the natural bitterness and residual hate of cultural clash; colonialism, genocide, and outright invasion and land theft are uncomfortable things that make us feel uncomfortable when we're forced to confront them. "Dance Me Outside" as an "ethnic" narrative works in entirely the opposite fashion, but it works brilliantly. This movie is the bomb, people.
Director Bruce McDonald, a non-Indian, has co-written a fabulous snappy script (based on Kinsella's story)that is almost literally back-to-back one-liners:immensely quotable. Every type of humor--from broad physical to ironic wry humor--is at work here. McDonald's approach to directing is obviously well thought-out, yet we never sense him at work when we are watching; all we see are the loose, engaging, charming results--this movie unfolds almost effortlessly, seamlessly. I dare anyone to say they feel uncomfortable while watching this movie, even during its so-called "darker" moments.

Pow Wow Highway held the rank of #1 Indian Cult favorite for the last decade plus, but this is so good I had to buy a second tape since I wore out the first one and now am looking for a copy in DVD. GREAT movie! It gets better every time you watch. I recommend sharing it with friends. Update: Six years down the road and I now own two DVDs in case one gets broken. This is the best movie I've ever seen! Funny, sad, real scenarios. Anyone who has lived on or spent any time on a rez will know and have lived many of these events.

"Dance Me Outside" was a fantastic Canadian film from 1994 based on the novel of the same name by W.P. Kinsella. Directed by Bruce McDonald and co-written by Don McKellar ("Last Night," "The Red Violin"), the film centers around Frank Fencepost and Silas Crow, two young adults on a reserve in northern Ontario, planning on going to college in Toronto to become mechanics. We are introduced early on to their family and (girl)friends, and the tragic act that sets the tone occurs early on in the film. "Dance Me Outside" inspired the (Canadian) TV series "The Rez" (1996) which featured many of the same actors and characters (Frank, Silas, Sadie, Joseph, Etta).
The film opens with a shot of Silas Crow crouched down staring at his namesake, accompanied by a native flute and a voiceover. Throughout the film there are ties between the spiritual and the natural, whether it is Illiana's mother telling her that babies come from the Great Spirit or the predictions of Mad Etta. The scenes of Robert McVey, Illiana's white Torontonian yuppie lawyer husband, being "initiated" into the tribe as a ruse for Gooch (Illiana's old flame who was just released from jail) to impregnate Illiana, border on the absurd, representing white stereotypes of First Nations and vice versa, but there is a power, a lack of inhibition and an attempt to become one with nature, that makes it moving.
"Dance Me Outside" features many talented First Nations actors: Adam Beach (who was also in the award-winning "Smoke Signals"), Ryan Rajendra Black, Jennifer Podemski, Michael Greyeyes, Selim Running Bear Sandoval, and Vince Manitowabi among them.
The music was equally excellent, from a variety of bands such as Kashtin, the Vern Cheechoo Band, Joanne Shenandoah, the Headstones, Keith Secola, and R. Carlos Nakai.

I've seen and own this movie. This movie is based on the pretense of comedy, yet the dark underlying issues are ever present and hanging over your head. It was well acted, and it has been scripted beautifully. The take off series inspired by the movie called "The Rez" continues the movie in a believable fashion and stars the same actors, although Frank Fencepost has been replaced. But Adam Beach shows up again throughout the later episodes as a new character called Charlie. It's just a shame that it's not being made any more. Thank god for reruns! I recommend the movie to anyone anytime!
