From Everybody:

Too long and light on plot, but a true spectacle.

Heaven’s Gate is way too long and not enough happens in it to warrant its obscene three hour and forty nine minute runtime. However it is a filmmaking spectacle to behold with its immense cast, incredible choreography, and bustling city scenes. Writer/director Michael Cimino’s lavish spending on these aspects of the movie is palpable throughout, but that doesn’t make his efforts any less impressive. If you hate long movies, Heaven’s Gate won’t turn you into a fan, although at least Cimino will give you things to marvel at, if you’re brave enough to suffer through it.

"What one loves in life are the things that fade"


=== 1870, Harvard ===

In 1870, two young men, Jim Averill and Billy Irvine, are graduating from Harvard College. The Reverend Doctor speaks to the graduates on the association of "the cultivated mind with the uncultivated," and the importance of "the education of a nation." Irvine, brilliant but obviously intoxicated, follows this with his opposing, irreverent views. A celebration is then held after which the male students serenade the women present, including Averill's girlfriend.
