Synopsis


Dances With Wolves
A historical drama about the relationship between a Civil War soldier and a band of Sioux Indians, Kevin Costner's directorial debut was also a surprisingly popular hit, considering its length, period setting, and often somber tone. The film opens on a particularly dark note, as melancholy Union lieutenant John W. Dunbar attempts to kill himself on a suicide mission, but instead becomes an unintentional hero. His actions lead to his reassignment to a remote post in remote South Dakota, where he encounters the Sioux. Attracted by the natural simplicity of their lifestyle, he chooses to leave his former life behind to join them, taking on the name Dances with Wolves. Soon, Dances with Wolves has become a welcome member of the tribe and fallen in love with a white woman who has been raised amongst the tribe. His peaceful existence is threatened, however, when Union soldiers arrive with designs on the Sioux land. Some detractors have criticized the film's depiction of the tribes as simplistic; such objections did not dissuade audiences or the Hollywood establishment, however, which awarded the film seven Academy Awards, including Best Picture. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi

    Longest Movie Ever!!!

    Dances with Wolves is a fantastic movie and looks great after 20 years on Bluray. There's a few grainy spots in the movie but there's only a few scenes the entire 3:55 runtime. So far this is the best transfer I've seen on Bluray by far. I own some movies from the early 2000's and they don't look as good as Dances with wolves and that was originally released in 1990.

    If you like "The Searchers" then you will love this movies cinematography. It focuses on both the good and bad of Indians and Americans alike and wraps it up in a great story. I cannot think of such a moving western in my 40 years of watching except maybe "True Grit" (1969).

    Granted this is a long movie to begin with, but what Costner left on the cutting room floor in some cases really needed to stay with the movie. Many questions are answered with the extended/deleted scenes replaced into the sequence of the film.
