Deadwood – Visual Pacing

Posted on December 16, 2008 in: Uncategorized by Andrew Birkhead

I’ve been enjoying Deadwood, the HBO series via Netflix. I was watching the last few moments of a season two episode when I was taken by surprise the closing sequence. The sequence seems fat with dialogue and emotion while being entirely wordless. The pacing is boldly slow and deliberate. What I enjoy the most is that the sequence seems to be cut entirely visually, without regard to the music.
