I’ll have more to say about television for the Pandemic, but today I want to recommend something I watched while recovering from cataract surgery in 2019. If you haven’t watched it now would be a good time: “Godless.” (On Netflix.)
Scott Frank who created and wrote “Queen’s Gambit” wrote it.
It’s a Western.
The acting, the cinematography, the dialog, or at times the lack of dialog— will all take your breath away.
Amazing women characters fill this series. (Merritt Wever, Tantoo Cardinal, Michelle Dockery all have strong roles.)
There are SERIOUS gunslinging displays.
Jeff Daniels is in it.
He plays a villain, but that’s really too simplistic a way to describe what’s going on with his character.
Really. Are you still reading this? Haven’t you already started to watch?
