Extraordinary full-length 70mm version of Cimino's notoriously expensive western, which looks at the conflict between immigrant settlers in 19th century Wyoming and the aristocratic empire-builders who want them swept out of their way. Absolutely stunning photography and a wealth of period detail almost make up for the rather thin central narrative. A film to be seen and savoured despite the critical drubbing it has often received.
