Finally, let's hear it for one of this winter's most enthralling home video releases. Milestone Film & Video is bringing out The Exiles, Kent MacKenzie's gorgeously shot 1961 saga of the workaday lives of young Native Americans living in the now-vanished Bunker Hill neighborhood in downtown Los Angeles — a unique mixture of socially conscious documentary and narrative that fits in all too well with the hunkered-down mentality of this interminable Year of the Rat. It'll be released sometime in early 2009 (go to MilestoneFilms.com).
