    Days of Heaven


    There are movies that you’ll carry with you your whole life. You change and get older, they stay just the same, and whatever new you see in them is a reflection of your changed self. It’s a cliche, but I’m old enough now to feel how true it is. Anyway, this is one of those movies. I love it dearly.

    Knocking half a star for the score. Deren’s images work better here without it.

    De Seta understood that one of the great pleasures of cinema is watching people struggle and labour, then sit down and eat some food. Huddled around a fire cooking as the sun goes down: the perfect climax to any movie.

    I can’t think of another movie that’s so meta and cerebral while being so simply and purely affecting.

    A masterpiece.
