Terrence Malick’s Days of Heaven, the long-awaited follow-up to his 1973 debut Badlands, confirmed his reputation as a visual poet and narrative iconoclast with a story of love and murder told through the jaded voice of a child and expressive images of nature.

Drury professor Gerard Nadeau will lead a post-show discussion about Malick’s masterpiece in terms of Leo Marx’s thesis in “The Machine in the Garden.” This screening is made possible thanks to a grant from the Missouri Arts Council.

"One of the great cinematic achievements of the 1970s."
- Variety
"Perhaps the most typical example of a '70s American art film -- daring, romantic, rebellious but also filled with longing for the beauty of the past."
- Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Almost incontestably the most gorgeously photographed film ever made."
- Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
