PonoVanDusen’s review published on Letterboxd:
urgh. annoyed that i actually ended up kinda liking this. first act was borderline unbearable and i really was at my breaking point with kevin costner’s goofy narration. i seriously couldn’t take kevin costner. john barry provides an amazing score just for kevin costner to stand around with that dumb look on his face. the movie continuously gets better and benefits greatly from the ensemble performances of the actors playing the sioux natives, and their dynamic with costner. john barry, i can’t stress this enough, is so great. also, the cinematography is very interesting; one beautiful frontier shot for every 4 thoughtless and uncomfortable close ups or zooms. anyways, fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck america, also can’t stress that enough. another dad flick in the books.
