Badlands

3.24.13

This arrived in the mail this past weekend, after many years of anticipation for it. Terrence Malick’s films have had an enormous influence on me personally and on my work as well. I was first exposed to his work in college while taking a Film Aesthetics course during my semester in New York City. “Badlands” and “Days of Heaven” were influential to me in seeing film as an art form and also how cinematography can help tell a story and evoke an emotional response through images and light. Check out this masterpiece of American Cinema on the Criterion Collection if you have not yet had the pleasure to.
