Days of Heaven

Days of Heaven ★★★★

"Nobody's perfect. There was never a perfect person around. You just have half-angel and half-devil in you."

I have still not experience with the younger Terrence Malick. Despite having a much more sharp narrative, i can still identify his distinctive story, some specific camera movements and a featherlight narrative that jumps across the most important scenes.
The film carries the reputation of being one of the best-looking film of its time, and it shows: the hayfields of Days of Heaven are not only beautiful, but with the movie being mostly set during the "magic hour", the combination of lights and enviroments gave the impression that the characters are living in a limbo, stuck between the good and the bad of their own nature. An eternal sunset.
I was not very fond of Linda Munz's narration.
Ennio Morricone's score needs no recognitions, it's just on its own level of godliness.
Excellent cast, especially Sam Shepard.
