One of the great cinematic achievements of the 1970s. full review

Variety Staff, 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. full review

Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune

Days of Heaven never really makes up its mind what it wants to be. full review

Harold C. Schonberg, New York Times

Almost incontestably the most gorgeously photographed film ever made. full review

Michael Atkinson, Village Voice

It is the closest to poetry in motion that I have ever seen. full review

Andrew Ross,

One thing that certainly can be said about Terrence Malick's Days of Heaven: it's not sentimental or manipulative. Unfortunately, it's also not particularly involving. full review

James Berardinelli, ReelViews

This is a movie made by a man who knew how something felt, and found a way to evoke it in us. full review

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
