Days of Heaven 1978 ★★½

I understand a lot of people love this film and think it's a masterpiece. I did'nt get that feeling. It was just really bored throughout and while it did pick up in the last third, I could'nt get into it. I did'nt dig some of the stuff like the narration and I could'nt care for the characters. Don't get me wrong, it's well directed by Terrence Malick and the cinematography looks beautiful, but I just was'nt too crazy about this film. Maybe it's something I'm missing or my expectations were too high. Don't worry. I'll give this another shot one day because I said the same thing about Badlands a few years back and then ended up really liking it when I saw it recently but for now, I just don't love Days of Heaven as much as others.
