Filmed in Colorado, the motion picture Badlands, a masterpiece by Terrence Malick, finds its resolution in South Dakota. Why was this movie not shot in the right place? Perhaps a budget issue. I imagine that the scenery is too dramatic for the purposes of Malick, and it would have mashed the characters and their tale. Badlands National Park is an alien planet’s creepy crust lain on South Dakota.
