Adam GR's rating of the film Deadwood

Carrying a torch from McCabe & Mrs. Miller, David Milch's complete vantage of the violently nascent American West sets sights on characters only of this time and place. Invincible character actors catapulting their talents from Milch's exquisitely dynamic prose. I love how, by the end, all native Deadwood enemies lay down animosities to trust in Al Swearengen's beautifully complicated guidance. SETH & ALMA FOREVER!
