Dances With Wolves


I didn't think this movie was deserving of so many acadamy awards. What do you think?

It was probably one of the worst films I have ever seen Borrrrrrring.

No problem with this film at all. I find it a great movie. Maybe the film is a bit overromantic,
but at least the indian nation get the credits they deserve. And for those who are really interested in indian ethics and culture, i recommand the full length version of this film. This version is NOT boring. It only explains more.

I thought the purity of the Indian life in contrast with the harsh, unsympathetic view which Costner's character came from, offered a refreshing insight into the difference in worlds. While a certain military seriousness and supposed sophisticated had dictated his life, he found a breath of fresh air with the so called savages. The brief battle between the two Indian tribes was perhaps significant in that the soldier returned to his outpost to get guns to help his adopted tribe. This can be seen as interfering wih nature and also as a sign that he can never truly leave his old life. A good watch.

Quite ironical, ain't it ? 'cause you are right about the interfering with nature and the fact he can not leave his old life. It was already the moment he came up with the idea to get the guns. It was clear he'd not given it a serious thought to leave his old life. 'cause if he did the guns could be a confrontation.
Indeed the film is much about the contrast. And it's quite a realistic one. The long version ( a four hour-version if i remember correctly ) contains more conversations between Duncan and the indians to get to know them better. So on a playfull way the viewer get some historical lesson too about the indians, to understand them better.
