People sometimes wonder why Terrence Malick is everyone’s favorite Texas boy done good. For a man who has only made six movies in a directing career that has lasted more than 40 years (this could have something to do with a 20-year hiatus), the Austin recluse has made his mark on American film. Need proof? Just check out 1978’s Days of Heaven. Malick’s award-winning ode to Panhandle love triangles, Days of Heaven is the perfect example of Malick’s eye for amazing cinematography and understated storytelling. Days of Heaven screens through Sunday at the Texas Theatre (231 W. Jefferson Blvd.). Tickets are $9.50 with discounts available. Call 214-948-1546 or visit thetexastheatre.com.
