Terrence Malick's 1978 masterwork Days of Heaven finally gets the DVD treatment it deserves from Criterion in October. They have released the cover art (above) and the all the specs on their site. Check it out here. There is equally great news on the Criterion releases of Jim Jarmusch's indie classics Stranger than Fiction and Night on Earth.
If any director deserves the time and energy the Criterion crew puts into their DVD transfers it is Malick, who's 4 films to date - 1973s Badlands, 1974s Days of Heaven, 1998s The Thin Red Line and 2005s The New World - are among the most beautiful creations ever put on celluloid.
