Before there was Days of Heaven, there was Badlands. Both share a brilliant writer and director in Terrence Malick, and both hold me completely spellbound with their dusty views of the darker side of romance. Badlands is a soft-focus portrait of a teenaged girl and her drifter boyfriend who embark, almost accidentally, on a killing spree across the Dakotas.

Killing sprees don’t generally make for dreamy entertainment, but Malick has a way of softening even the most senseless violence until it just fades into the background. Hand-hewn tree houses and rustic farms hide the couple on the run, and for a few minutes, you’re able to drift off and forget what’s really happening. When you come to, what’s burned on your retina isn’t the body count but the hazy adventure along the way.
