A love story that despite its dramatic ending, skies, fires, and ode to nature doesn't manage to move us much. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 1, 2000
One thing that certainly can be said about Terrence Malick's Days of Heaven: it's not sentimental or manipulative. Unfortunately, it's also not particularly involving.

The refusal to privilege the 'big' over the 'small' is present in all of Malick's work, but it finds its first fully-realized expression here.

The writing is witty, the story is told with a beguiling simplicity and the period is meticulously realised, not only in farming equipment and costume, but in attitudes and faces.

A second chance for Malick to cast away the chemical stained print and achieve the film he envisioned, and a second chance for audiences to experience a true classic on the big screen.

For Malick, Man is just a small part of a world which just keeps going round with or without his petty squabbles, crimes, loves, or melodramatic plots.
June 1, 2011
A film about awareness, standing still and being cognizant of the things around you.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10

What remains is a haunting sense of waywardness, of the drifting millions who have toiled away on fields and in factories, fading into the American past, unnoticed.
