You've almost convinced me Days of Heaven > Badlands. :)  Anyway, I do love that credit sequence, and paired with the music, it might be my favorite ever? I don't know, but it's amazing.

Beautiful write-up, sam.

Because if this films dissapears, the aesthetic quality of wheat in art is going to plummet like crazy. Next thing you know, people will be starving for beautiful wheat imagery. That kind of starvation can kill a person's soul."

I think I need to see Before Sunset  :P. I liked Before Sunrise but in the year since I watched it, I haven't urgently felt the need to see its sequel.

Just you wait till I'm done with my essay.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

I'll take quality over quantity any day of the week.

The grand man tipping his hat there kind of looks like President Wilson, no?

I'll be hoping for both, but I'll take this as slow or as fast as I think I need to for the content to remain good.

I think it actually is, but didn't think it was worth noting. Although, I though a different president is in that train that rolls by later in the film. Could be wrong. I'll find out soon enough and if it is I'll be sure to bring it up.

Okay, I'll definitely be watching Days of Heaven again. I think when I saw it a few years ago or so I just didn't get it. That was a great writeup.

And did I ever mention how much I love this thread?

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.
