Dances With Wolves (Feat. Shea Vasser

They should have never given Kevin Costner money. This week we take a look at a movie so boring and tedious that we struggle to tell the difference between the 3 hour theatrical cut and damn near 4 hour directors cut. Yes, it's time for 1990's Best Picture winner and the highest grossing western of all time, Dances With Wolves. 

We're joined by the incredible Shea Vasser to discuss how this movie is so long yet nothing happens. Also what was up with Mary McDonnell's hair, several wild behind the scenes stories, and marvel at how this movie won so many damn awards. 

Movies recommended: One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest, Reservation Dogs. 

Please do yourself a favor and read Shea's excellent Through a Native Lens column at Film School Rejects where she breaks down some of the best and worst of indigenous representation in film. 

And as always, check us out at @white_pod on Twitter, and feel free to write us at whitepeoplewontsaveyoupod@gmail.com 

We love you, see you next week!
