Ethereal, gorgeous, and evocative.
| Original Score: A+
Unforgettable 1978 love triangle drama includes violence.
| Original Score: 5/5
Simply one of the most ravishing films ever made, luminous in a way that no other movie has been.
A rich and rewarding experience, then as now celebrated for its intricacy and slowness.
The writing is witty, the story is told with a beguiling simplicity and the period is meticulously realised, not only in farming equipment and costume, but in attitudes and faces.
A second chance for Malick to cast away the chemical stained print and achieve the film he envisioned, and a second chance for audiences to experience a true classic on the big screen.
Visually and thematically, it's still one of the most beautiful films ever made.
A film about awareness, standing still and being cognizant of the things around you.
| Original Score: 10/10
You can feel Terrence Malick drifting away in this follow-up to his acclaimed debut.
| Original Score: 3/4
One of the most visually impressive American films ever made, Days of Heaven fulfilled the promise that Terrence Malick had shown in Badlands
| Original Score: A-
It has a visual syntax so eloquent -- its fields of gold cause its quiet characters to stand out like mythic figures -- it would play powerfully as a silent film.
| Original Score: 9/10
The images of workers in their landscape look like impressionist paintings that cinematographer Almendros creates on the screen with the natural light of his locations.
A truly beautiful photographed film.
For Malick, Man is just a small part of a world which just keeps going round with or without his petty squabbles, crimes, loves, or melodramatic plots.
This is the towering, unconventional power of a true artist.
A feast for the eyes and ears.
| Original Score: 4/5
One of the great cinematic achievements of the 1970s.
The sound alone is astonishing. Morricone's haunting, wistful score adds measurably to the sweep and timelessness of the film.
| Original Score: 4/4
To hell with equivocation or beating around the bush: Terrence Malick's 1978 Days of Heaven is the greatest film ever made.
