HBO’s Deadwood has a brilliant epic Shakespearean script. Having never watched the series that was cancelled ten years ago was not an issue. With minimal flashbacks, the back story for the plot and character’s motivation are clearly delineated. Despite kicking off the film with the declaration of South Dakota statehood, the proceeding lawlessness is organically portrayed. But to listen to the poetic language makes the viewer relish this gorgeous film. The ending montage with Waltzing Matilda underscoring the cinematography makes for a spiritual landscape.
