Cinematography: Days of Heaven

Director: Terrence Malick
Cinematographer: Nestor Almendros

When one says "great cinematography," beautiful landscapes, tight close-ups, perfectly balanced colors, and Days of Heaven come to mind.

Days of Heaven, featuring a young Richard Gere, was directed by Terrence Malick. It's a love triangle set in early 20th century America.

The film is notable for its better-than-brilliant cinematography, which was mostly shot by Nestor Almendros. Days of Heaven is visual magnificence.

The film's iconic locust attack sequence.

A wheat grass during spring.

A close-up of the fierce creature.

Yummy red wine.

I love how this shot captures the lines on the actor's face.

The Farmer's house.

I feel like I'm looking at moving paintings whenever I see these shots.
