His wife saw more than he did, especially the budding love between Lieutenant Dunbar and Stands-With-a-Fist, who was played by the heavy-duty stage actress Mary McDonnell. If I could rate the musical score for this movie by itself I'd give it a perfect 10, because it's one of the best I've ever heard, able to stand on its own but fitting the movie like a glove. He also gets great performances out of his cast. The Dunbar character cleans out the watering hole at the fort because he refuses to lose his humanity like the men before him who abandoned the fort. What the heck are people thinking! While this movie draws its inspiration from American epics as diverse as The Birth of a Nation 1915 and The Searchers 1956 , its originality lies not only in its respect for Native Americans but also in its intensely personal treatment of the main character. Only this movie's extreme length works against its total success, particularly in the special edition that runs nearly four hours.
Best of all, it captures the hesitant emotions of the story, the sense of curiosity overcoming fear and becoming trust. He was patient and was the type of person you would want as a friend. Wes Studi can be very intense in his savagery, but in the eyes of the Pawnee, he was only protecting his tribal interests. I hope you enjoy the videos that I share.

The final images, such as the journal floating down the river, the white man and the Native American speaking English to each other, and the brave shouting his farewell from the top of a cliff, are so beautiful and dreamlike that they manage to be both joyful and sad.
I was only ten at the time, and this was the first movie I ever saw that was both an eye-filling and a mind-filling spectacle. The story is not entertainment. You see the effects of the same winds that blow across the face and hair of Stands-With-a-Fist. The story is about them as seen through the eyes of a perceptive white man, who had been given a new life by the gods when his attempt at suicide ended with his recognition as a war hero. You see the grass move in waves like the ocean does when the invisible winds touch the surfaces. Dunbar quickly makes friends with the tribe, and discovers a white woman who was raised by the Indians. The beauty is not in the trophy.
There's no question that Scorcese is the better director, but I believe the direction of Dances With Wolves is better than that of Goodfellas. He gradually earns the respect of these native people, and sheds his white-man's ways. The wolf too was curious about the soldier, but kept his distance for a while. The first disturbing scene is when the Pawnee attack the Sioux village and we see that to save themselves, the Sioux need the technology the rifles of the white soldier. The three-hour theatrical version is still long, but it's difficult to say what should have been left out of it. He requests a position on the western frontier, but finds it deserted. Original language of this video description is English.
The cinematography was some of the best I've ever seen and in the tradition of the great movie director, John Ford. Another quality this movie shares with The Searchers is that it associates the physical challenges of the frontier with the testing of the soul. The story is, of course, fiction based on a novel by Michael Blake. Give a thumbs up, subscribe, or share if you enjoy what we've shared so that we more excited. Costner's movie takes great pains to allow us to know the Sioux characters.
Maybe people thought the movie was too long. To me, the movie is a story of the 4 billion, six hundred million years of natural evolution which is about to meet technology. I extend the message of this movie to today and see population running amuck, stripping the land of resources and changing the atmosphere. It's a quiet, thoughtful story, and although there is action in it the focus is on how the action transforms the characters particularly Dunbar rather than on the action itself. But when they adapted their life to the horse, they became a great people. Ford had an ability to present the land in all its beauty, which also just happened to have a story occurring on it. He gradually earns the respect of these native people, and sheds his white-man's ways.
Eventually a bullet strikes the wolf and we hear him cry out. Some changes were made in used content. The same winds take the smoke from the lodges away from the village. The beauty is in the life. Their everyday routine of just living off the land is seen the same way as a buffalo eating the grass. You could see it in the face of every tribal member as they walked past dead and skinned buffalo which were left to rot in the sun after the buffalo hunters had skinned them for their hides.
Not only is he the enemy to the white man but the Sioux also. Few other three-hour epics Lawrence of Arabia and Braveheart come to mind have developed their protagonists as fully and dynamically as this movie develops Costner's Dunbar character. We have Rodney Grant playing the part of Wind-in-His-Hair, the warrior who was quick to anger but was smart enough to listen to his elders and not kill the white soldier. John Ford hired Navaho people to play the parts of Indians in his cavalry trilogy, Fort Apache, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon and Rio Grande, which were filmed in Monument Valley on the Navaho Reservation. .
