Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee powerfully explores the price paid by Native Americans because of the westward expansion by the United States. The story follows the lives of three main characters: Charles Eastman (Beach) is a Dartmouth educated Sioux doctor held up by the U.S. government as a successful example of assimilation, Sitting Bull (Schellenberg) is the proud Lakota Chief who refused to submit to U.S. policy, and Henry Dawes (Quinn) is one of the architects of the government policy on Indian Affairs.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD generally looks superb, exhibiting nicely balanced contrast and good black levels. Details are captured very well, with fine textures looking very realistic. Fleshtones have a slightly pinkish hue, but colors are generally saturated well. Shadow delineation can be slightly lacking, with shadows looking flat and under-defined. Edge enhancement is generally minor, although it can be readily noticeable at times. The imagery can also have a digital edginess, and compression artifacts can affect the naturalness of the encoding at times. For the most part, though, this is a very good-looking picture.
