Days of Heaven


Dir. Terrence Malick. 1978, 94 mins. 35mm. With Richard Gere, Brooke Adams, Sam Shepard, Linda Manz. There’s no better way to experience Malick’s one-of-a-kind work of cinematic poetry than in the theater. Featuring Oscar-winning cinematography by Nestor Almendros, this gloriously realized evocation of the turn of the twentieth century, as seen by laborers in the fields of a Texas farmstead, is one of cinema’s most remarkable period pieces. It’s also a romantic tragedy, as idiosyncratically told as it is indescribably beautiful.
