Days of Heaven

Days of Heaven ★★★

The first hour of the film is pretty to look at, but that’s about all it brings to the table besides some choppy unnecessary narration, spotty audio, bland performances, and a tired narrative that moves at the same pace of a 30 hour nature documentary. I’d say watching Malick’s style unfold in Days of Heaven is much like watching a sloth trying to slowly suck its own dick.

With that being said in the final 30 minutes it seems Malick remembered he had a story to tell and while the story itself wasn’t all that fascinating, it was very welcome if it meant I would be provided with something. If I’m being honest everything in this film either feels unnecessary or predictable, but again the cinematography was beautiful and the last 30 minutes were somewhat interesting so yeah it’s okay I guess.

6.2 / 10
