(Michael Cimino, 1980, United States, DCP, 219 min)
Never has a film seen such a critical turnaround as Heaven's Gate, derided on its release as the worst film ever made and then, decades later, celebrated as a masterpiece. This Western's legendary cast and crew include not only its directorwho had just finished work on The Deer Hunterbut Christopher Walken, Kris Kristofferson, Jeff Bridges, John Hurt and even a young Willem Dafoe. Together the ensemble tells a mythic tale of class warfare in the wilds of Wyoming, centered on a love story between a marshal, a mercenary and a brothel madam.
