“Box office flops rarely attain the status of film history footnote, but Heaven’s Gate became a legend, […] a punch line, a symbol of all that was wrong with Hollywood and its excesses…. Critical opinion has shifted over time — to the point that a film once damned as a self-indulgent behemoth now seems, to many eyes, a misunderstood giant [—] a fittingly bleak apotheosis of the New Hollywood, an eccentric yet elegiac rethinking of the myths of the West and the western, with an uncommonly blunt take on class in America. But this defiant last gasp of the downbeat ’70s, opening two weeks after Ronald Reagan was elected president, was plainly a movie at odds with its time.”
Dennis Lim, the New York Times
