Days of Heaven

Director - Terrence Malick

Genre - Drama/Romance

When a cinematic experience touches your soul, reaches into the innermost human aspect of what makes you breathe and live, it becomes so much more than mere entertainment. Terrence Malick's visceral visualization for this sprawling epic drowns out typical movie narrative structures, favoring a detached, not always explained plot line. Oddly enough, this actually plays to its advantage. As memorably potent as one's first conquest in love, this is a rebellious and unyielding masterstroke from the grandmaster of cinema.
