Yes, it IS sad to lose poor Uncas...but being the ever-optimistic Pisces that I am, every time I watch the movie, I think to myself, "Maybe...just maybe...THIS time Uncas will win the fight!" And I hold my breath through the entire struggle, as though that might make it turn out differently.
But, I don't consider this a "least favorite" scene, because I truly think it is a MASTERFUL bit of film. The pounding of that drum in the background echoes the sound of my heart as Uncas begins his desperate run up the mountainside, and continues straight through to Alice's fall to her death. Any movie moment that can pull a viewer into it as completely as that has to be considered a wonderful scene, surely. I give it 5 stars!
