Author: Walz, Eugene
Title: Riel
Notes: Walz argues that the C.B.C.'s three-hour television movie on "Riel" fits the Hollywood method for making films about historical figures. "Riel develops through a series of programmable conflicts arranged between stereotyped characters....This makes for a brisk, compelling pace....and is designed for maximum impact. But it is done at the expense of historical accuracy and credibly complex characterization."
