Deadwood the Movie

The movie version of Deadwood is out this week on DVD - 13 years since the show was cancelled after three series, presumably because viewers found it difficult to follow. The fans of 'Deadwood' have always considered it to be the greatest thing on TV, surpassing both 'The Wire' and 'The Sopranos'.

Don't miss out, lovers of good dialogue. Watch the TV series first and then the film. Use the subtitles, otherwise you'll miss half of it.

The Guardian wrote: 'The big relief for fans is that the language is still extraordinary. Creator David Milch’s mastery of the spoken word is as strong as ever. Deadwood’s monologues can be celebrated as standalone pieces, so if you loved Al’s reflections on his upbringing or EB Farnum’s floor scrubbing cri de coeur you will appreciate flashes of that brilliance throughout the movie.

Deadwood always excelled in finding beauty in depravity. Murder, betrayal and mutilation were always ever-present threats in the show, but over time the cruelty softened. Civilisation comes through necessity and even evil men must bow to progress. Heroes and villains find common purpose. A fragile consensus forms. The movie develops the theme. Producer Carolyn Strauss says, “It’s about the passage of time. The toll of time on people.”
