But isn't this precisely what a sparse tree does? I.e., it highlights
the relevant deadlines but preserves the context...

I dug around in the source code and found a command (normally invoked by
org-sparse-tree) that shows all deadlines in a file within n days
(determined by a prefix argument).

If you type...

C-u 1 M-x org-check-deadlines

...org-mode will highlight all the deadlines in the buffer due today or
past due. You could bind this to a key.
