  1. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    It's like 'La Cienaga' meets 'The Servant'. It's an ancient story of romantic deception and betrayal couched in turn-of-the-century Americana, postmodern editing (the clashes of unrelated sounds and images), and the uniquely American wanderlust. For how familiar the story is, it's rather striking in that it plays out like a series of moments. It's rather like the photo montage that opens the movie, overall.

  2. Eric Eidelstein's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    Nobody's perfect. There was never a perfect person around. You just have half-angel and half-devil in you.

  3. dionysus67's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    Malick's much celebrated film oscillates between character development and a depiction of an imposing social and natural milieu beyond the control of individual agency. Both motifs are elegantly treated by Almendros but again the indecisive mix of an agrarian epic and art film remains unecessarily fragmentary and far too absorbed in landscape photography. Thus, characters remain fuzzy, in spite of undeniable bravura.

  4. Eriugena82's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    An absolutely incredible film! In terms of a story there is only a rather thin outline to guide things along, but this outline is filled by something utterly transcendent. Of course, there are interesting (and grand) themes here too - love, death, modernity vs. nature and so on. More than anything it is pure poetry; filled with some of the most beautiful shots I have seen on film.

  8. zohen lux's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    today during magic hour i found myself thinking i wish it would last the entire day instead of the usual hour or so. then i get home, pick a movie that's been on my watchlist forever and it turns out to be Magic Hour: The Film. LIFE'S A FUNNY BITCH!

  9. Marach Adipalin's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    This film was made by a man who got possessed by HalfDevilHalfAngel.

  10. RumbleFish's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    Imparare a guardare il grano, per il resto ingenuo ma intramontabile

  11. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    Reminded me of Hopper's House by the Railroad. It is one of the most beautiful films ever made, but the story could've been fully fleshed out if it had another half hour. You get the impression that films like this deserve that Sergio Leone run time.

  12. askapsaskis's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    Beautiful, sure, but it feels thin, a series of excuses for Malick to shoot his humanistic agriculture porn. I would have appreciated it more as a longer, silent, non-narrative film. I do admire his sincerity—he risks coming across as comically sentimental in his obsession with American landscapes and salt-of-the-earth people, but I'm totally on board. Aside from the sheer beauty of the images, Manz is the highlight.

  13. Luca Di Gianni's rating of the film Days of Heaven

  14. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    It is a beautifully shot poetic drama with a believable story. Astonishing editing on the film. The movie would have been even better if the voice-over had been dropped I guess but this is a epic production that is hard to forget.

  15. August Boulder's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    This could be a 4.5 ... Gorgeous film. Didn't mind the girl's narration too much, I thought it worked rather well. Brooke Adams' smile is heart-shattering. I think this one's gonna stay with me for a good while. You should watch it.

  16. Nachtreich's rating of the film Days of Heaven

  17. gld48's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    So gorgeous to look at. Malick's interest in nature is in early display here too, sometimes conspicuously. It may not have much of a story but everyone is fantastic, especially the little girl. The best voiceover ever. It sets such a perfect tone too - the period is so well rendered, it feels completely authentic. One of the best.

  18. F/K's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    Each frame in this film should be hanged on every wall

  19. Renton47's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    I wonder if people who complain about the characters are watching the actors, because I'm never in doubt of the moral burden writ across each expressive face. Of the magnitude of finding something like paradise, which humans naturally cannot sustain. It's devastating and epic, spiritual in a Spinoza sense that unifies each living thing. For my money perhaps the finest American film of the 70s.

  20. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    Malick’s 70s giant masterpiece was filmed almost entirely around sunset. Its a hopelessly romantic tale of lovers on the run and a doomed love triangle. Unforgettable images that come to mind are those of a wild fire, a herd of horses, a grasshopper plague and a whole lot of wheat. Pure palpable cinematic magic.

  22. Ann Burden's rating of the film Days of Heaven

  23. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film Days of Heaven

    In poco più di un giro e mezzo di orologio Malick e Almendros spiegano il significato di "composizione cinematografica perfetta". La fotografia e la regia del film raggiungono un livello che raramente ho visto prima d'ora, riuscendo a mettere in secondo piano anche la meravigliosa sceneggiatura. Un piacere immenso per gli occhi, potenti i colori tanto quanto la narrazione, giù il cappello per Malick, di nuovo.
