Experience director Terrence Malick’s landmark Oscar winning movie starring Richard Gere, Brooke Adams and Sam Shepard. Known for its outstanding visual scope, and stand-out cinematography by Nestor Almendros, its set against the wheat fields of the Texas panhandle in the early 20th century. A tragic love triangle, a swarm of locusts, a hellish fire—every moment is an extraordinary cinematic achievement of sight and sound.

  • Beautiful, but Buyer Beware!

    One of the most beautiful and influential movies from the '70s… a real "classic'. BUT -- this version here on iTunes is in SPANISH, and there is no English soundtrack (English Closed-Captioning only). Also, my copy is very grainy and does not play smoothly… the only iTunes movie download I have ever had problems with. I'd recommend not spending your money here, at this time.

    Dubbed in Spanish (at least for the HD version). I just wasted four dollars, since I didn’t realize this.
  • Perfect.

    By Shadowboxing
    Malick is one of the few who understands the relationship between dream and cinema. More an experience than a film. This work speaks to the deepest kind of human consciousness; our relationship to the universe, and the magical catastrophe of existence. Transcendent.
  • Quite possibly the most beautiful film ever made...

    But please do yourself a favor and buy or rent the DVD. A film this gorgeous-looking is not meant for a tiny little iPod screen.

  • Very Dark Movie

    By Awe Heal
    Too dark for my taste, this movie left me feeling sorry. Sorry for the people who endured this era. Sorry for the poor who work so hard to bring in the harvest and sweat to manufacture items of convenience for society. Sorry for the characters depicted in this movie. And finally, sorry for the way commercialism has devasted our beautiful landscapes, resources and nature. Being sorry isn't such a bad thing---everyone should learn to apologize---but wow--this movie just forces you to be sorry. I'm sorry...that this dark movie has made me write such a bleak review. Sorry for you, if you're reading this.
