Days of Heaven

I had wanted to watch Days of Heaven for a very long time… I finally watched it in October 2022, and it did not disappoint!

It is one of those rare movies where the visuals and the atmosphere are more important than the outward narrative of the story. It captures that unique and fleeting feeling of “days of heaven” when you feel truly and utterly happy, disconnected from the whole world in your own happiness. It also conveys the intangible feeling of the flow of fate and how little power we sometimes have over it. It deeply resonated with me on so many levels, consciously and subconsciously. There are no other movies like it, a true masterpiece!
