Days of Heaven (1978)
Unfortunately, I never quite stopped thinking about how this narrator, this girl "from Chicago", had what sounded like a strong Puerto Rican accent. Gere and Adams also sounded New Yorkish... or something, but definitely not Chicagoan.
It kept me from enjoying the film a little, because there were several mentions of it...it wasn't once. How could no one on the film notice this? Maybe Malick was trying to indicate that they were all even tumblinger tumbleweeds than we thought, actually starting their journey in New York, with an extended stay in the windy city. Any theories?
At least Sam Shepard (looking better than EVER I must say! Not that I noticed *ahem*) sounded like the panhandle farmer he portrayed.
I loved the rest, even though I did not find the superb cinematography quite as mind- blowing as expected - but I owe that to the heightened expectations anyone seeing this must have.
Also, Linda was such a very rare name for a child born at that time, it's funny they'd give such a central character that name. See? http:// babynamewizard.com/namevoyager/lnv0105.html
Sorry for all the pet peeves, but the merits of this film are so well known that can't have anything new to add.
