The White Dawn (1974)

An American Canadian adventure directed by Philip Kaufman, starring Warren Oates, Timothy Bottoms and Louis Gossett Jr.
Men from a whaling ship crash and are rescued by eskimos.
This was amazing compared to most of the other Philip Kaufman films I've seen. The whaling sailors blend into eskimo society in varying degrees. The blonde guy goes native, the black guy is neutral and the bearded guy wants to leave. Technical aspects were fine with subtitles for eskimo language. The plot actually held my attention and the characters were interesting. As is standard for Philip's work, there were sex scenes and nudity. No female anatomy points were earned though. Overall, a triumph for piss-poor Kaufman. I rate this good because it's actually worth watching compared to his other crap.
