Cimino’s teeming and elegiac revisionist Western of grand 1890s Wyoming despoiled by class warfare and land grabs was thought too big to fail, but after vilification by press and industry at an exclusive NYC run it was cut by 70-some minutes, to no financial or artistic avail. In 2012, Cimino presented a restoration at the Venice and New York Film Festivals. Overblown folly or enveloping thinking-man’s epic? You decide.
