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.

"Despite being a box office bomb and panned by film critics at the time of its original release, it has gotten a warmer reception in the recent years, most particularly the 2012 director's cut released by the Criterion Collection. I just like to watch it myself for curiosity."
