Love versus survival

How did it ever take me so long to discover Days of Heaven?  Love versus survival is a theme I thoroughly enjoyed.  The idea that perhaps we humans are mere animals wanting to survive, eat, pro-create, in competition with others, pervades this film.  As we go through our day-to-day lives, is this all it’s about?  Other than Barry Lyndon which I saw some weeks ago, this is has some of the most beautiful photography I can ever remember seeing.
