* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: Cimino argued that he simply wanted to make a compelling story, not a political one. That didn't stop some critics from calling him a Communist and the film left-wing propaganda. Granted, the film was about poor immigrants being unfairly slaughtered by rich elitists with full support from the American government; surely Cimino must have known how politically-charged that subject matter is.

It didn't help when he gave an interview around the time of the edited version's release saying that he wanted to show the birth of the American mentality that ultimately led to Vietnam.

** There's also the argument that the film's failure was a result of negative publicity about the film's production reported in news reports before the film's release. Negative publicity had damaged the reception of ''Film/{{Ishtar}}'' (a late-80s BoxOfficeBomb that like ''Heaven's Gate'' is now regarded as an excellent film) and this in turn put more pressure on the producers who released a cut-down version to critics which didn't make sense, and only made things worse. This practice of cutting down and sabotaging releases also led to other instances in TheEighties such as ''Film/BladeRunner'' and ''Film/{{Brazil}}'' whose ReCut version released later proved to be successful.
