Crop And Save
Days of Heaven (1978)
Nothing has ever been better than this
This is the most perfect cinematic experience I have ever had. The score is haunting and brilliant. There are moments which took my breath away, more of them than in any other 100 motion pictures combined. The acting is completely naturalistic, never interfering with the storytelling. I have enjoyed this experience perhaps ten times and never once, not for one instant, have I been bored. Linda Manz' narration was tone perfect, especially her pronunciation of "Chicaga." This is the apex of storytelling: before this motion picture, I cared nothing for the Texas Panhandle, nothing for farming, nothing for the early 20th century. This film picked my fat butt up, transported me to that era, and made me care for the region, the farmers, the sweat of the workers, the music of the times, everything. In short, this movie hooked me on movies, and I keep going back to them although I have never come close to replicating the complete sensory fulfillment I enjoyed with this film. God bless Terrance Malick.
