As a recent MFA screenwriting graduate, I really liked Hell or High water in terms of structure, plot, character, and just overall story arc. As a resident of New Mexico, where much of the movie was shot, and as someone who grew up in southern Oklahoma, and North and West Texas well, I related to the landscape. As a Comanche however, the constant references to my culture were a mixed bag. While I appreciate the love for the history and culture of my people, too often a non-Native i.e., "white" writer, will present a really heavy handed approach to many things Native. No one actually says, "We are the lords of nothing". I can't see anyone from back home saying such a corny thing, much less in this psuedo stoic hollywood Indian voice. This I might blame on the director, and I know the screenwriter is using my tribe as a metaphor for his overall story of thieves on the run and such, but c'mon, can you do less corn, more contemporary reality? It almost ruined the movie for me, ALMOST.
