Days of Heaven, by Terrence Malick

Friday, August 21st, 2020

Days of Heaven, written and directed by Terrence Malick, is a perfect film. Linda Manz, RIP, the narrator, is the star, and we’re talking Richard Gere, Brooke Adams and Sam Shepard in the same film. From the first time I saw it in 1978 when it came out, until tonight when I watched it again to soothe my rambling soul, it is an inspiring film, a relevant film, about people doing the best they can, the best they are capable of given the circumstances they were born into.
