Dances With Wolves is one of my favorite Western movies. Not that it makes the annual tray of films I've got to watch again and again. But in the extravagant way Costner treats the landscape, the movement of peoples (indigenous fols and former soldeirs) and the depth of his characters. Who can ask for a crazier captive white woman? And what picture better portrays the tentativeness of new settlers, the Lakota or even the wolves? I loved it. And no, I haven't forgotten how long the film is.
