    Deadwood: The Movie

    ★★★★

    I don't know everything.To tell the truth, I really don't know nothing.

    "You never even loved yourself."

    Being an alternate ending to something like Neon Genesis Evangelion is not easy.Especially when it is the originally intended ending that could've replaced the last two episodes of the series.When the ending of the iconic series met with mixed reviews and…
