Echoes #14

A climactic sequence in James Gray's _Little Odessa_ echoes Christopher Walken's unforgettable entrance in Michael Cimino's _Heaven's Gate_.
Adam Cook

From Michael Cimino's Heaven's Gate (1980):

 From James Gray's Little Odessa (1994):

American murderers tearing through the fabric (from opposite sides; East meeting West) of their society in cinematic gestures, immor(t)alizing the spirit of violence—opening heaven's gate.

Part of our on-going series, Echoes.

I like this one. Interesting. Seems like it demands a full essay.
Nice. I remember wondering about this when I saw Little Odessa; glad to see it here.
