Dances with Wolves (1990) is Kevin Costner's career masterpiece, the epitome of a great western epic.

The film is complete with a legendary score and soundtrack, cinematography, and even an interesting back story: Michael Blake, who had been washing dishes in a Chinese restaurant when an old friend, Kevin Costner, asked him to adapt Blake's novel into a screenplay so Costner could direct and star in it.

Costner's character, towards the very end of the Civil War, has the choice of his post and wants to see the frontier before it is gone. Along those lines, we ought to see this film, too, because the beauty of a simple but effective epic may be a lost art in Hollywood these days.
