    "Richly textured and visually compelling" (The Hollywood Reporter), this lavish, epic western retells the true story of Wyoming`s infamous Johnson County War - a brutal conflict during which wealthy cattlemen, backed by the U.S. government, hired mercenaries to murder 125 immigrant settlers.

    From the incredible beauty of the magnificent landscapes to the explosive violence of the bloody battle itself, Heaven`s Gate combines breathtaking cinematography, Oscar-nominated Art Direction and memorable performances by Kris Kristofferson, Christopher Walken, Isabelle Huppert and Jeff Bridges in a spectacular, panoramic and ultimately haunting look at the reverse side of the American dream.

    Well it`s a marvellous movie. I got this in about October 2000, the disc is abit outdated now, It`s not in Anamorphic, although the source print is very good, devoid of extra`s. Get only if you Love the movie, in which case you should havew it already
