Days of Heaven

Days of Heaven ★★★★½

"You're like an angel"
"I wish I was"

Just gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous. It's beautiful people making bad decisions for an hour and a half, and if there's little subtext, who the hell cares when everything is this pretty? 

This is the road, this is beauty, this is what it looks like when the world reflects your pain. Heartbreak is a burning field, heartbreak is an ember that reminds you of the past, heartbreak is Sam Shepard meeting Richard Gere's eyes from a horse, and heartbreak is a screwdriver through your fucking heart. 

Malick makes subtlety look like a fools game.
