In celebration of acclaimed novelist Jim Shepard’s first non-fiction title, we’re pleased to present the author to discuss this landmark film by Terrence Malick. While an award-winning author of fiction, Shepard also teaches film at Williams College and now he is releasing his first collection of cinema essays, The Tunnel at the End of the Light: Essays on Movies & Politics, on Tin House Books this fall. Shepard brings his signature humor, insight, and eloquence to bear on classic movies, deconstructing the American psyche in the process.
(1973) dir Terrence Malick w/Martin Sheen, Sissy Spacek, Warren Oates [94 min; 35mm]
“Days of Heaven put Terrence Malick’s intuitions into cogent form, but this is where his art begins.” – Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
“This first, magnificent, outpouring of the sporadic genius of cinema’s equivalent to JD Salinger, Terrence Malick, still seems terrifically modern.” – Wally Hammond, Time Out
“An indisputable masterpiece of American cinema.” – Rob Fraser, Empire Magazine
