Review: Heavens Gate (1980): Minute by Minute

23 Jun

Simon continues his celluloid odyssey through a Micheal Cimino’s maligned gem, Heaven’s Gate.

The final names appear, then pictures! But first it should be noted that Michael Cimino has given himself two credits – written by and directed by. Rather than having his name appear twice, Cimino could have combined the two and formed a “written and directed by” title. Cimino clearly knows nothing of word economy.

But considering this is a man who’s produced a three plus hour film, I don’t know why I should expect any different.

Despite all that, the moving pictures are the focus of this minute. An orange sky, a man running toward a gate and a superimposed caption beginning to fade in. Why is the man running? Did he set fire to a hedge? Did a hedge set fire to his aunt and he’s running to get help? Why are hedges lighting people on fire?

I look forward to answers.
