Just read through the thread.
I finally saw Days of Heaven a few weeks ago, and was blown away after the 2nd viewing.
Paul is constructing his movies like this, shooting one thing and after editing, going somewhere different. Or maybe 'finding' the movie in post production.
Then there is the ad libbed narration.
The pick up shots made in a pool / fish tank.
The reverse locust shot.

This is one of the best movies I've seen in a while.

I've had Tree of Life since Jan 2012 and still haven't watched it. I get the feeling it is a movie I want to watch with no distractions, and I rarely get the chance to watch movies like that anymore.
Just finished DOH for the first time tonight, and definitely see the PTA comparisons in spirit. A sense of how he liberated himself post-Magnolia (and perhaps pre-Phantom Thread, but we’ll see how the next picture shakes out).

Does anyone have any specific interviews etc. of Paul talking about Terry? Or does he fully keep this influence personal
