It's fairly evident from the style and calm of Jesse James that Malick's masterpiece left a lasting impression on Dominik. And any cinematography class is probably incomplete without studying these two. Having said that, I felt a stronger emotional connect with the story of Jesse James. Brad and Casey are a bit too much for the cast of Days of Heaven, and I also preferred Nick Cave and Warren Ellis' score to Ennio Morricone's. Both are outstanding, no doubt. Richard Gere, you're forgiven for Pretty Woman.
Yeah, it wouldn't surprise me at all if Andrew Dominik was heavily influenced by Days of Heaven. In my view, Dominik's film manages to surpass Terrence Malick's by a wide margin.
