Lone Star Film Festival - Heaven’s Gate
November 11, 2012
220 East Third Street , Fort Worth, TX
Michael Cimino’s legendary western epic has never actually been seen in its full, uncut, big-screen glory. Hastily pulled from American theaters one week into its release and subsequently reissued in a butchered version shorn of some 70 minutes, Heaven's Gate has rarely been revived in the three decades since, even as it has been duly re-appraised by critics as an innovative masterpiece. Now it returns in a stunning new restoration commissioned by The Criterion Collection and supervised by Cimino himself. Based on a despicable episode of rarely told American history, Heaven's Gate recounts the 1892 land war between wealthy cattle barons and immigrant homesteaders in Johnson County, Wyoming - a stinging indictment of American capitalism run amok. Caught in the middle are the lawman James Averill (Kristofferson), the hired gun Nate Champion (Walken) and the woman (Huppert) who loves them both, an intimate drama that plays out against the painterly canvases of Cimino and cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond.
