Days of Heaven

Stunning photography is what one experiences with this Terrence Malick film. Made way before this or this - brings alive the brown wheat fields of Texas Panhandle (apparently its the Canadian prairies in reality) and the life of 3 migrant labourers. Richard Gere plays a young, hot-blooded worker who conspires with his girlfriend to entrap the owner of the field. Despite the "innocence" behind their intentions, it is apparent that tragedy is the most likely outcome. A classically plain plot that is ore underwhelming. But it cant take away the fact that it is indeed one hell of a beautifully shot film.
