It's a colossal journey of self-discovery, exploration, and education, rounded out with all of the elements of influential storytelling.

...in Costner's case, it appears genuine. With Dances with Wolves, he has reduced Hollywood formula to an elegant equation of truth and beauty.

[Dances With Wolves] packed with action, emotion, romance, laughter and an insight into a half-lost culture, is one heck of a beautiful movie.

It's still a wonderful time at the movies by turns, a grand adventure, a great inspiration, and a missing chapter In what it means to be human.

By never falling into the trap of allowing spectacle to supersede character, Costner's Dances with Wolves restores depth, idealism, poignancy and even wonder to a genre that had long seemed moribund.

That's what people have always loved about Westerns -- the feeling of size which, in the age before radio, TV and the airplane, seemed the very nature of the country.

It's an engrossing tale, and Costner directs with the confidence of a Hollywood veteran well aware that entertainment comes before earnestness.

It has greatness in it. It also has some distinct, even major flaws. But it's rather easy to get swept up in it.

This is a big picture in love with our landscape as much as with the Sioux Indians who inhabit it.

[Dances With Wolves] is so evocative of the sweep and lyricism of the American West that it could be pegged as the cinematic equivalent of a Frederic Remington painting.

[Costner] makes it a true human story, portraying the range of emotions from tragedy to joy.

The important issues raised by the film- centered on the cultural, racial and moral struggle that took place on the American frontier-are glossed over in favor of a juvenile fantasy of male bonding around the campfire.

In an age when most movies are made by people who used to shoot commercials or music videos, the panoramic vistas of Dances with Wolves are an enjoyable reminder of the potential of the big screen.

This collective array of talent has yielded a western that is at once original and traditional. Dances With Wolves looks back to the masterworks of the past and, with its relevance to our present, it deserves to be ranked with them.

For the most part, ''Dances With Wolves'' is tight and interesting throughout.

To say this movie is sporadically artful is to say that it is more interesting than most films around these days. But it is still a failure, if a glorious one.

This is a marvel from beginning to end.

Once in a long time, a movie speaks to the truths of U.S. history and causes the filmgoer to see past events in a new light. Dances With Wolves is such a movie.
