GESTATION PERIOD: THE CINEMA OF TERRENCE MALICK
Double Feature!
DAYS OF HEAVEN / BADLANDS
35 mm!

DAYS OF HEAVEN
1978, Paramount, 95 min, Dir: Terrence Malick

Director Terrence Malick’s lyrical tone poem set at the turn of the 20th century tracks impoverished Chicago couple Richard Gere and Brooke Adams as they migrate to the Texas Panhandle and masquerade as brother and sister to find farm work. When their smitten, terminally ill boss (Sam Shepard) proposes to Adams, the couple see a way out of their poverty. But after the marriage, Shepard seemingly recovers, and tragic complications gradually unfold. Gorgeous, thoughtful and at times achingly romantic, this ambitious working-class epic set the standard for Malick’s future films - passionate, moody and serene meditations on the human condition set in a tragic dimension. Nestor Almendros won the Oscar for Best Cinematography. Co-starring Linda Manz.


BADLANDS
1974, Warner Bros., 95 min, USA, Dir: Terrence Malick

The first feature from visionary maverick Terrence Malick, based on the Charles Starkweather-Carol Fugate murder spree of the late 1950s, stars Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek as innocent, amoral young killers flashing across the desolate American landscape like brushfire. A violent folktale for the modern age, brilliantly written and directed by Malick, and photographed by Brian Probyn, Tak Fujimoto and Stevan Larner.
