"I am not made for such complexity," says Farnum, and in that way, the movie not only being good but enhancing the show more than it cheaply detracts from its run is appropiately boggling,
The resistance of hokey or arbitrary reunion antics makes this not compararable to many belated conclusions. The movie seems to know that seeing Ian McShane, Timothy Olyphant, Robin Weigert, and Dayton Callie slip into these roles again is most paramount.
Would anyone have guessed Franklyn Ajaye gets a monologue in the last ten minutes of this? I'm pretty sure I love this show more than anything else ever committed to film.
