Based on Thomas Berger’s astounding novel, Little Big Man might just be Dustin Hoffman’s greatest cinema moment. He plays the rambling Jack Crabb, who recounts his storied life as raised by Indians and befriended by the murderous General Custer. Ultimately Crabb is either insane or one of the most unique characters you will ever meet. Or both.
Satirical, wise and deftly humorous, Little Big Man is a neglected gem.
