    Among the many pleasures of Heaven’s Gate is its evocative score. It was arranged by David Mansfield, who also performed nearly all of it and even appears on-screen, unforgettably, as a fiddler on roller skates. When Mansfield came by the Criterion office to be interviewed for our release of Michael Cimino’s epic western, he brought along his violin, and he serenaded us on it with an impromptu rendition of “Heaven’s Gate Waltz.” Watch that performance, not included in the release, here.

    Bravo indeed. Mansfield's score is one of the few things that I did like about Heaven's Gate.
