I sure would love to see a Bluray release of this movie.

There is also a great influence of American painters like Andrew Wyeth ("Christina's World", above them all) and Edward Hopper ("House by the railroad")
Here are some links of those pictures:

I should point out that even though the filmmakers drew inspiration from great paintings, it's still quite an achievement to pull it off photographically. What impresses me even more though is that Malick, Almendros and Wexler kept that beautiful quality consistently throughout the entire film. Most films are lucky to get such evocative beauty in a couple shots; Heaven kept it up start to finish.

Don't forget Mr. Fisk.
What impresses me most is how everyone that worked on this were the kind of people needed to pull off such a great film. One of the hardest things about lower than "normal" budgets, like this had, is getting talented people that are dedicated outside of a big day rate and overtime. If only everyone with worthwhile projects were so lucky.
