The balance of director Michael Cimino's film is so confusing, so overlong at three-and-a-half hours and so ponderous that it fails to work at almost every level.

The set-pieces are majestic and its disenchanted view of the american frontier myth still rings ominously true.

If anything, Michael Cimino's inert disaster of a Western has gotten worse over the years ...

This movie is $36 million thrown to the winds. It is the most scandalous cinematic waste I have ever seen, and remember, I've seen Paint Your Wagon.

Flawed but interesting piece of art in the form of an anti-Western.
