Thunderheart script
Thunderheart (1992)
Synopsis: When a series of murders stuns a small Native American reservation, the FBI sends in agent Ray Levoi (Val Kilmer) to investigate. While Ray is relatively inexperienced, he is one quarter Sioux, and the FBI hopes that will make it easier for them to gather information from the locals. While the reservation police officer (Graham Greene) views the agent as an outsider, the tribal elder (Chief Ted Thin Elk) believes him to be the reincarnated spirit of Thunderheart, a Native American hero.

CARL:

Yeah.

RAY:

You're my hero, Carl.

CARL:

Heroes ain't supposed to shake. I'm

shakin', man, look at me.

RAY:

Breathe, Carl. Four, nice, deep ones.

They stop at the door of a service elevator and Carl breathes.

Expanding his chest, exhaling. Ray adjusts Carl's tie for

him, his collar. He speaks quietly. Quickly.

RAY:

Anyone stops us going in, we're with

the Bowen-Hamilton Textile Company.

We have rug samples.

CARL:

Rug samples.

RAY:

We are one-dimensional, boring

peddlers of fine carpet, Carl.

Carl nods. Ray hesitates, adjusts his own collar and enters

the service elevator. Carl follows. Door closes.

BEGIN CREDITS END.

INT. GRAY BUILDING - FENCING OPERATION

Carl follows Ray into the big sparse room of unfinished

sheetrock walls. There is nothing in here but cardboard boxes,

and two people; a bearded HISPANIC MAN standing behind a

counter, writing on a clipboard. The other is a middle-aged

BLACK MAN in a purple silk shirt sitting in a chair with a

newspaper held open. He barely looks over the top of the

Wall Street Journal.
