Lonesome Dove is the great American movie. Helluva vision.
7 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

In the end it's how a movie touches your heart that is its measure.

The characters must touch you. The story, interesting in itself, must seamlessly direct those characters to be revealed for why they matter. The actors playing those characters need to be right. Or, as here, just damn perfect. Robert Duvall once said something like: sure the British can play Shakespeare. But they can't play Gus McCrae.

He's right. You can have the Hamlet DVD any day you want; I'll watch Lonesome Dove.

Robert Duvall is the anchor and the soul. Name a better performance. Angelica Huston is the beauty. And somehow Tommy Lee Jones steals the movie.

A great story about great characters played by great actors.

The Godfather movies, as good as they are, have not the legend or the nobility of Lonesome Dove. Forget the usual suspects like Citizen Kane. This is the great American movie. Helluva vision.
