Politicamente correcta y entretenida, pero nada màs. Esta cinta puso a su protagonista en los cuernos de la luna por algun tiempo, sin embargo, la "prometedora" carrera del actor y director se fue a la chingada cuando acepto el rol principal en Waterworld. A falta de chamba en Holywood, hoy resulta pateticamente cagado ver a Kevin Costner tratando de hacerle a la cantada. Ni pedo. La papa es la papa.
An engrossing western epic with intimate and poetical sensitivity and a wonderful score by John Barry. Kevin Costner is very good in his role and behind the cameras. Excellent directorial debut for this outstanding human drama
I watched the 3 hrs and 53minute cut the other day and it felt like watching a great Novel with the slow paced action,stillness of the landscapes,the indian language, the dusty prairies, and Costners best performance to date. A solid story well told with great cinematography by Dean Selmer who paints old colors on a wide canvas. A loud shout out to Graham Greene and Mary McDonnell whom makes the film better.
