Oh My God. Beauty that leaves you without speech. And I cannot improve upon the Criterion write-up.
"Days of Heaven is the movie that the Village Voice famously called “the most gorgeously photographed film ever made.” Naturally, this beauty, featuring Oscar-winning cinematography, was a prime candidate for the high-def treatment. We’re happy to announce that Terrence Malick’s visually astonishing, dreamlike story about an early twentieth-century love triangle among two migrant workers (Richard Gere and Brooke Adams) and a landowner (Sam Shepard) in the Texas panhandle is now available in a Criterion Blu-ray edition. The word is in from the experts: DVD Town says, “Days of Heaven is one of the most beautiful films ever made. Anyone who denies this can and must be ignored . . . The Blu-ray release is so dangerously ‘pure’ it should be illegal.”
