Heaven's Gate is a beautiful film. Almost every frame perfectly captures the allure of the classical romantic West. Sadly, the rest of the film is essentially a disaster. If one looked up maniacal ego trip in the encyclopedia there would likely be a portrait of director Michael Cimino slapped on the page. The beauty of the film is hindered by a mess of a story, countless wasted minutes, horrib... read more

Description: A notorious artistic and financial failure, Michael Cimino's Heaven's Gate was blamed for critically wounding the movie Western and definitively ushering out the 1970s Hollywood New Wave of young, brash, independent filmmakers. Taking a revisionist, post-Vietnam view of American imperialism, Cimino used the historical Johnson County W ... (more)

Empire's 50 Worst Movies Ever (50 movies items)

" Who's responsible: Director Michael Cimino. Why it's on the list: The story goes that director Michael Cimino asked why no one was drinking champagne at his film's premiere, and was told, "Because they hate the movie, Michael." There are five uninterrupted minutes of fiddle playing - on roller skates - and Jeff Bridges throwing up, also on roller skates. But it's a Western - go figure. Redeeming feature: The 219-minute cut is said to be considerably better than the original 149-minute versio"

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"Cimino kept an armed security guard posted outside the editing room during postproduction to keep United Artists executives from interrupting him. Over 1.5 million ft. of film was used. Over a million feet were processed in labs. There really was a Johnson County War in Wyoming and James Averill, Nathan Champion and Ella Watson were actual historical figures. In the real war, however, the U.S. Army arrested the cattlemen for hiring the killers and did not threaten to arrest the homesteaders "

Walken through his movies (98 movies items)

"Walken portrays the melancholic and mysterious Nathan D. Champion in the unfairly criticized and rejected Michael Cimino's Heaven's Gate. It's the second collaboration between the actor and the director. "

The kindest cut: Movies improved by directors’ cut (14 movies items)

"When a 219-minute version of Michael Cimino’s Heaven’s Gate was released to vitriolic reviews and terrible buzz, United Artists pulled the film from public viewing and had it re-edited down to 149 minutes. The radically shortened version didn’t fare much better with critics or audiences, but the film’s reputation began to change for the positive when Z Channel began airing a 219-minute director’s cut that restores the film to its original grandeur and ambition. Most importantly, th"
