Days of Heaven

Days of Heaven ★★★½

an evocative and expressive picture that captures the feeling of wanderlust through its breathtaking cinematography. every moving take is packed with emotion through its blocking and natural lighting whilst every still shot is deserving of being in a National Geographic article that speaks of the Texas panhandle as a magical place. the film is incredibly tactile and with the use of earth, wind, water and fire it feels all too real. the story itself did not resonate with me all that much and you can tell that it wasn’t the primary focus for director Terrence Malick who seemed more interested in capturing ravishing moments through dazzling photography. this is a beautiful picture that you just breathe in and experience.
