    To my sensibilities, Kevin Coster is one of the most natural actors currently working in films. He reminds me of the best attributes of Gary Cooper, with wasters seeming to be his forte.

    Yellowstone is a modern take on those 50s and 60s TV western soaps, and occasionally rises above them.

    Beautifully shot in Utah and Montana, with an Alexa, the images ported over to Blu-ray are perfection, and like some other productions shot for TV, but wishing to appear akin to a theatrical offering, the aspect ratio is 2.0:1.

    I've only found the time to make it through the first two (of 9) episodes, but what I'm seeing will bring me back to not only the next 7, but the second season.

    A worthy project, which in some ways harkens back to Giant, and a tale of an insular, wealthy family fighting to retain what they've created.
