The Greatest Western of All Time
Larry McMurtry’s wonderful story is beautifully and amazingly brought to the screen by director Simon Wincer. It assembles together one of the best casts in movie history. Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones are nearly perfect. Duvall has been quoted as saying that Gus McCrae was his favorite character he ever played. He is certainly mine. Angelica Huston is the perfect person to play Clara. It is almost like Larry McMurtry had some of these actors and actresses in mind when he wrote his novel. The only exception is Frederic Forrest as Blue Duck. He does a fine job with what he’s got, but the man just isn’t big enough or scary enough for this role. The story is incredible. The scenery is beautiful. Lonesome Dove is, in my opinion, the best western ever made. A definite must see for everyone.
This may be the only time that a television adaptation is as good as the source. Lonesome Dove is a great book which won a Pulitzer Prize for Larry McMurtry. The mini series runs six hours, and is never boring. Robert Duvall is Gus McCrae, and Tommy Lee Jones, Woodrow Call, both former Texas Rangers who run a livery in Lonesome Dove in Texas. Joshua(Danny Glover) is their scout and tracker who joins them on a cattle drive to Montana with another ranger named Jake(Robert Urich),who is on the run after shooting a dentist in a barroom brawl. Along with them is a prostitute, Lorie(a young and beautiful Diane Lane), to make the journey a lot more interesting, especially when Gus repeatedly tells her, Lori, you’re just a whore. The dialogue is real, and not your typical western with all good and all bad guys; it is not all black and white in this world, and McMurtry is a genius. The story is a long and all encompassing one, with beautiful scenery from start to finish. It is the best television series ever made, ranking with any theatrical release in its depth and character development. The biggest difference being the length, which provides the time to fully realize the novel. A 10/10.
