One review

  • “Dances With Wolves” is a classic masterpiece! It touches on everything that is truly important to me: beautiful love and friendship not just between people but also between people and animals, loyalty & dedication, harmony and victory. There’s also a lot of drama, action, humor, and the most important message a movie can give to its viewers. A message that when practiced would effect and solve all other issues in life. The cinematography is breathtaking, the music score is lovely (certainly one of the best orchestral sound track scores that I have had the pleasure of enjoying) and the cast is absolutely superb. Go watch this film if you haven’t already, the Oscars it won, especially the award for Best Director for Kevin Costner was well deserved!
