A prairie home companion

9/10
Author: chaos-rampant from Greece
21 December 2012

This is the best episode so far for my money, a little gem of western film. There is once more a lot of heartbreak and separation, and typically for the series, the ending is sentimentally abrasive—the only note off so far in Lonesome Dove, proof that the script and actors are great, but the filmmaker, when he has to dramatically engage with the camera, is average. Duvall is once again his rascally self. Jones broods. These guys are great together, they have a knack for the life, Hemingway men that they are at heart.

In this episode, however, they finally reach Ogallala, drifters docking for a while. The resonance between dusty, weather-beaten wanderers and the clean prairie home in the cosmic middle is something to watch.

Everything about this is so rich.

Anjelica above all. Diane Lane is great, great but too fragile to support this world of dreams. It's Huston who has been the center— the hearth, the bosom—pulling us in her orbit all this time.

Memories. Love. Regret. She binds all.
