Heaven’s Gate Minute by Minute: 78 of 229

78 of 229

Shit just got serious. There is something James and Ella are not talking about. James is the silent type – another Western hero cliché. If this film is an anti-Western, James’ character should be the opposite and go by the name of James the Verbose Cowboy. When greeting people he’d blurt out his feelings and thoughts on humanity. He would never be succinct and over explain everything.

“James, are you ever going to come back?”

“Maybe… someday.” Would be a typical Western exchange. But it should run thusly:

“James, you’re not coming back, are you?”

“I don’t know, I’m just at a point in my life right now where, like, you know I’m all ‘Gah!’ You know? It’s just like, this and everything around it is just so over there, but I’m here. Do you follow? I want to be something, but yet not be something and I can’t be both not something and something here with all this, like, stuff, yeah? It’s about central experience and I just feel this, like, well, this is central, but I don’t want to be central, but I do, but everything can’t be and like my boots are like, ‘Grrr,’ you see? Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must go calmly reason with the violent guy in the black hat.”
