• As part of its summer movie series at Madison’s Marquee Theater, the University of Wisconsin Madison Cinematheque is screening Terrence Malick’s beloved Days of Heaven in 35 mm tomorrow. Malick’s second film, made four years after his stunning debut, Badlands, stars Richard Gere and Brooke Adams as runaway lovers who flee to the Texas Panhandle as migrant workers, only to get caught up in a love triangle with a farmer, played by Sam Shepard. Of course, the plot is secondary to Malick’s gorgeously abstract filmmaking and digressive use of voice-over, as in the following clip.

    They've got a great line-up this summer including the original Godzilla on the 4th -- & Ulmer's Naked Dawn coming up later on etc. etc. ... I'm sure I'm not the only Chicagoan planning my weekend getaway such that I can take in a film at UW while I'm at it! ...

    Malick's almost-trademarked voiceovers - in Days of Heaven by Linda Manz - just add to the stunning photography and dialogue that characterize his films.
