Heaven’s Gate Minute by Minute: 128 of 229

30 Oct

128 of 229

I miss the stationmaster already. I hope the family in his pipe escaped ok.

The horsemen ride on to make further mischief, no doubt. The scallywags! No time for archaic insults – the film cuts back to Nathan’s strangely wallpapered cabin. The man in blackface is regaling Nathan and his guests with a peculiar tale about being shot at. All laugh, but I’m not sure why. Perhaps they all remembered something completely unrelated, but thoroughly amusing, at the same time?

For pity’s sake, someone please offer him a face flannel, or moist towelette, or something! Has he been down a mine? Is there coal in Wyoming? I believe so. The mines are lined with luminous porridge worms. If you’ve never heard of a porridge worm, eat less toast. I hope he mined lots of coal today, or as I like to call it; carbon ghosts!
