A Native American is teaching a boy how to orientate in the nature and about life lessons

He teaches a boy how to figure out what time it is based on the position of the sun. I think the boy was from the city and didn’t believe it was possible without the clock. In the final scene, they are on the mountain and there are two (or more) paths to take and they have to choose the right one to not get lost. The man knows which path is the right one, but wants the boy to figure it out and he takes something behind his hands and tells the boy that if he can guess in which hand he holds it then he will figure out which road to take. The boy closes his eyes and thinks about all the lessons the man has taught him and as he opens his eyes to guess in which hand it is, the man is already holding it in front with his hands open and tells the boy that if he really believes in something, it will happen.

I am not sure if this is a movie, TV movie or a TV series episode. I think it is from the 90s, probably no later than mid-90s.

A bad guy is questioning the lead character if he slept with his wife

The bad guy tells him that he will let him live only if he passes his personal “lie detector test” (which is a gun pointed in the face). One of the questions was did he sleep with his wife. Then there’s a flashback scene where we see that he didn’t sleep with the bad guy’s wife. But he decided to answer “yes”, as that would be more believable and successfully passes that question.

It is 90s or early 2000s movie or some TV series episode.

Scene with character(s) trapped in a room filling with water

It’s a scene likely from some 60-s-70s spy thriller (though I’m not ruling out it could be newer, up to the early 90s). The movie was most likely in English language. I’m also not ruling out the possibility it could be an episode of some TV series.

It’s not The Return of Dr. Mabuse (1961) or Dr. No (1962).

It’s most similar to a scene from The Drowning Pool (1975). But from what I remember the difference is in the movie I am looking for the room could be entered directly from the street and it had something resembling a ship door (and perhaps it could only be opened from the outside)? I don’t remember if one or two persons were trapped.
