Days of Heaven
I don’t know how I’ve come through life without ever having seen this film until now. It has to be one of the most exquisitely photographed films ever. And it has Richrd Gere in it! He’s becoming a bit of a theme for me (check out my February 2nd post).
Long shots of wheat blowing in the wind, black horses with a dusting of snow over them, and a kid with a crazy voice narrating the whole thing. I don’t even know where to start with the costumes, but the sun-burnt, sharp-featured girls in dresses and boots are a knock-out.
