  1. gematoma's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    lots of ridiculous moments, the movie feels chauvinistic itself. still fun to watch, especially the moment where Christopher Walken starts falling asleep with no reason as he is just fed up with the film since everybody danced there except him

  2. Tatami's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    The failure of the film is that, for all its cinematographic magnificence and titanic scope, it never really coalesces. The films is not particularly memorable or engaging. Too little time was spent on character development. Worth watching for the cinematography and occasional moments of beauty.

  3. Dalibor's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    Clearly influenced by success of "The Deer Hunter", Cimino is occupied with similar topics in similar narrative, but with twice the sentimentality and grandeur, "Heaven's Gate" turns out twice as unconvincing. Beautiful film to experience, whilst believing none of it! With every frame on the verge of life and death, it lost all sense of spontaneous, human side we are supposed to identify with, or sympathize at least.

  5. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

  6. Zach Closs's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    Helped and hindered by its sprawling length; a sort of Stockholm syndrome begins to set in at the halfway mark. In terms of atmosphere and authenticity, the film is sublime, and Cimino's slavish devotion shows. Shot almost exclusively in the cool blue movie "magic hour" through a veil of Fuller's Earth Zsigmond blasted into the air with enormous fans, it really is a period photo come to life.

  8. josé neves's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    35mm, complete version. What makes me retract a little? The exhibitionism of Zsigmond's cinematography, full of astonishing effects or the character of Hurt doing Shakespeare in the middle of a space created for an epic feat. But it's certainly a rare film in its time, and much more at the present one, for its cinematic dimension bigger than art, for the complexity of mass movements, choreographed by a master camera.

  9. Pipim's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    Ce film est vraiment un chef d'oeuvre. Il est tellement ambitieux que c'est parfois dur à regarder. Le film a une ampleur et une mélancolie terrible: tout part en fumée et ce feu est absolument magnifique. Passer de paysages magnifiques, où les personnages sont sans cesse en épopée, à des situations politiques et intimes est difficile. J'ai beaucoup de mal avec la durée. Le personnage d'Ella est grandiose!

  12. John's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    I've looked hard for the masterpiece, and have yet to find it.

  14. Mauro Pagano's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    Vero rinnovo il voto perché è praticamente perfetto

  15. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    Heaven's Gate is a failure; let's be clear about that. But it is such a grand one that one can't be wowed by it, if one allows oneself to be. The story is thin and the characters thinner; but it's the film making, the film equalent of literarity; the cinematography, editing and pacing made me if not interested, it kept me with the film. It's too long, too convoluted and messy. But that's part of why it's great.

  16. speedball's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    the restoration, ultimate version is a great (or the greatest) masterpiece maybe in my personal top 3

  17. the_mentaculus's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    The movie's production, criticism, and relevance can be summed up in my watching this with my Dad, an armchair Western film savant: we finish the dual speeches between Cotten and Hurt, laying out the schizophrenic moralism and issues of integrity underlying the period's American Expansion and responsibility inherent in White Man's Burden, then he pauses the movie. "I did not understand a word of what they just said."

  18. Beatrice Lorenzini's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    con l'impressione generale che non farà che lievitare

  19. msmichel's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    The film that became superfluous with over indulgence and almost brought down a studio, and auteur studio cinema, plays now as a misunderstood and neglected masterpiece. One can forgive the leaden acting and under scripting for the shear brilliance of the technical filmmaking. Zsigmond's cinematography is breathtaking as is the attention to detail in all things. Cimino's best.

  20. Aardsy's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    Beautiful, over the top, too long and great.

  21. mubianer's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    I think it's about to get overrated since it used to be so underrated. The plot should be worked more with. Stunning cinematography. Favourite scene: When Huppert makes pie for Kristofferson. Somewhere between a 3 and 4, watching a great 35mm print probably made it a 4.

  22. Ethan's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    This movie got so much shit when it was released and I don't understand why. This is Michael Cimino's masterpiece, and that's saying a lot about the man who also brought us The Deer Hunter. Epics don't get much better or more beautiful than this one.

  23. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    It didn't deserve its fate, but nothing can magick such leaden line-readings (and leaden lines) into a lost masterpiece. Cimino here cannot convincingly evoke the drama, or comedy, or romance, or vivid characters this Fordian epic aspires to. But ask him to film a plume of smoke, or a landscape, or a dance, or a killing, and you're in heaven. Drop him into the silent era, and he may have been one of the greats.

  24. Matija's rating of the film Heaven's Gate

    weird stuff from Cimino, interesting but more often just slow
