10 years of Flick Filosopher: way out west

Like John Dunbar, I wish I could have seen the frontier before it was gone, too. From my review of Dances with Wolves, the Best Picture winner from 1990:

Dances with Wolves is one of the most visually and emotionally stunning movies I’ve ever seen, a glimmer of another world where less might have been lost if more people had been as open and friendly as John Dunbar. From John Barry’s stirring score — I swear I can hear the prairie grass blowing in the wind in the music — to director/producer Costner’s daring presentation of a huge chunk of the movie in the beautiful Sioux Lakota language (with subtitles), this is a majestic requiem for a world that is gone.
