The critical consensus

It is a demanding film, without a doubt – but a passionate one.

*****Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 01/08/2013

A studio fell and Michael Cimino's career never recovered but Heaven's Gate lives on as a landmark Western.

*****Ian Freer, Empire Online.

No doubt the stories of reckless indulgence around its making are true, but what's up on screen turns out vivid, gripping, intense. If only for the scene of Kristofferson waltzing with Huppert around a vast barn I'd watch it over again.

*****Anthony Quinn, The Independent, 01/08/2013
