: As much as I feel like throwing up every time I see Uncas head up the mountain, the scenes that follow are wonderfully done. The stunned look on Uncas' face when Magua cuts him, and then he almost looks like he knows he will die, but goes after Magua again. Alice turning away and can't watch. The blood spurting when Magua cuts Uncas' neck. Uncas' blood on Magua's outstretched hand as he beckons Alice back. And of course, the look on Alice's face before she jumps. The stunned look on Magua's face when Chingachgook clubs him. The resignation on Chingachgook's face before he impales Magua. The way Chingachgook kicks Magua off his club like you kick off a block of wood which is stuck on your axe. I was so awed by Michael Mann's direction in this movie that Heat was a great disappointment. The actors have been quoted saying how hard he worked them, but the end result was worth it to the audience. I hope the actors know how much we appreciate all the work, sweat and blood they put into this film. I'm sure I've seen it over 100 times, and I still find new things to admire about it.
Ever consider a job as a ringside announcer? :0) I can tell you HAVE watched this movie a hundred times! You are so right about how there is always new things to admire in this film. It must be wonderful to produce something like this that touches peoples hearts so deeply and even changes people's lives. I know it changed mine!
