Days of Heaven (1978)

Director: Terrence Malick Writer: Terrence Malick Stars: Richard Gere, Brooke Adams, Sam Shepard Genre: Drama, Romance Rating: PG

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.
