Against the Grain
Magic hour meets black magic in two visually stunning slices of Americana set amid rippling wheat fields and bathed in sunset’s golden glow. One of the most gorgeous films ever made, Terrence Malick’s DAYS OF HEAVEN pushes the story of a turn-of-the-century romantic tragedy into the realm of the sublime, thanks to the rapturous cinematography of Nestor Almendros. Its dreamy, Hopperesque aesthetic is unsettlingly mirrored in Philip Ridley’s surreal cult classic THE REFLECTING SKIN, which blends horror and wicked humor into a singularly strange and arresting vampire tale.
