Mark’s review published on Letterboxd:
Yellow fields, blue skies, wild animals straying the farmland, hills as far as the eyes can see, a child walking through the wheat.
Days of Heaven is Terrence Malick's largest film, yet it is still so small in size too. A big house on a humongous field but mostly focused on a group of three.
Everything about Days of Heaven focuses on the small parts from Terrence's stunning visuals of animals or people roaming the big fields to Morricone's subtle but gorgeous score.
This might even be my favorite Malick so far even though I still have a few films to see and I also really want to watch The Tree of Life again soon
