“Little Boy is a powerful and moving film depicting the harsh realities of Indian and Chicano life in New Mexico.”
John Redhouse, Coalition of Navajo Liberation
“Little Boy is a kind of grand summa, Lyon’s epic view of America focused through the lens of contemporary New Mexico. Its bleak, man-made environment is superimposed uneasily on a harsh, unforgiving landscape, and explosively charges with clashing subcultures. . . robust, pulsating with energy, but also clouded by a kind of doomed fatality. . .”
Thomas Albright, San Francisco Chronicle
