Long on Prospect, Short on Sight
Set in the open plains of Wyoming, "Longmire" has the potential to be a breakout summer hit, but it's "movie of the week" feel leaves this viewer wondering if the western-set drama can make the leap from novel to television series.
Our story picks up a year after death of Walt's wife. A broken and humbled man, Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor) is the incumbent Sheriff of Absaroka County. He's breaking in a new deputy, Victoria "Vic" Moretti (Katee Sackhoff), who has been with the Sheriff's Office for six months after arriving from Philadelphia where she was a veteran homicide detective.
In addition to his workload as peacemaker, Longmire is at odds with one of his deputies, Branch Connally (Bailey Chase), who is seeking to unseat the sheriff in the upcoming election. Not alone in this setting, Walt's friend of 35 years, Henry Standing Bear (Lou Diamond Phillips), isn't any closer to understanding his friend's feeling of loss and hopelessness.
Walt Longmire's face reads like the treasure maps seen in westerns from the dawn of cinema. Everything from Walt's haircut to his cracked skin and bleached lips read like a man that's spent plenty of time in the sun on horseback (or in his truck), searching for answers to a whodunnit, or just trying to fill that gap between life and everything else.
Having only seen the pilot, my complaint with the series thus far is the direction. At times, I got the feeling that "Longmire" is trying to be an homage to the Cohen Brothers film "No Country For Old Men." A dusty mystery-thriller, "Longmire" suffers from a short directorial eye. Though certainly passable for a series pilot, this is the story of lonely man, set in a lonely world, surrounded by a whole lot of nothing all the way to the Pacific Ocean. So, it would make sense that when you're trying to give that feeling of separation, pull the camera back and show us the man by himself in the vast expanse of Wyoming's natural wonders. Close-ups of everything from tears falling to guns being cocked give a jarring sense to the storytelling when coupled with long shots of Wyoming's majestic wilderness.
It's nice to see Lou Diamond Philips again, though he and Sackhoff are woefully misused here. Their talents carry them far beyond supporting roles, which has me itching for those episodes when we follow Henry and Vic through the Native American paintings that are the splendor of the American west.
Overall, I give "Longmire" four stars out of five, and hope the directional miscues are fixed for the remaining nine episodes of the first season.
Walt Longmire is the Real Deal
Craig Johnson's books are truly excellent. Episode One of the TV was good and it is hoped that the actors will have the opportunity to grow the TV characters. You can't distill eight books into 52 minutes but these folks have made a good start to creating a worthy version of Walt Longmire. Thanks to all involved.
Moves at a nice pace
Longmire's laconic sheriff lives in a beautiful part of the world so it's great to be able to take in the scenery while the story unfolds.
It's a refreshing change of pace from the usual scurrying about in the urban cop shows.
