The best epic about the American West

Wow, this is a powerful movie. I recently rewatched it after several years and suddenly remembered what really makes a great movie. I love how "Dances with Wolves" begins with an intimate portrait of the American West, from the vast plains to the charismatic wolf "Two-Socks". The film follows Kevin Costner's emotional but nuanced journey from disillusioned Army officer to Sioux patriot. The acting is superb all around. There are no shallow characters, even within the U.S. Army. Every character seems to have several layers of emotional complexity. "Dances with Wolves" is an emotional and visional treat. I can't wait until it comes out on blu-ray.
