: I too have so many favorite scenes that it's difficult to just pick one. But, I really find the opening scene, the elk hunt, to be extremely powerful and almost spiritual. I think it sets the tone of the whole movie and you just know from that point on the movie is going to blow you away and you'll never be the same again.
I'll vote with you, JC. That was a marvelous opening to the movie. Maybe I was the only one dense enough to be led totally unsuspectingly through it by Mann, but I didn't have any idea whether they were after Indians, fleeing from Indians, or what, until I saw the elk get hit. At that point, I was stunned by Mann's cleverness and simply thrilled by the magnificence of the whole sequence. I loved it!
