LotM is his best movie, Michael Mann and James Fenimore Cooper saw to that. LotM is one of those movies I can not only watch every time it comes on, I can completely immerse myself in every time it comes on. It's just so beautiful and tragic and emotional. Such a great movie.

I go back to his dressing room, all I see is the girl doing his hair is sitting on him.
So I see her body, her dress, and his legs.
