Abstract

In this paper I examine two films of Terrence Malick, Badlands (1973), and Days of Heaven (1978) as vehicles to look at how depth of thought can influence creative image making.1 Badlands follows two young people aged 25 and 15, on a journey through the American mid-West in the 1950s, as they try to escape their destiny killing people along the way. Days of Heaven is set earlier, just before the First World War and tells the story of a love triangle between migrant workers and a farmer.
