** 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.

* WTHCastingAgency: This was the producers' initial response to Cimino wanting to cast French actress Isabelle Huppert as the female (American) lead. Few people would argue that Huppert is in any way a bad actress, but her role in this film is probably the one that divides critics the most; in particular, the producers and many critics shared the opinion that her dialogue is fairly incomprehensible at times. Of course, one of the producers tried ExecutiveMeddling. Cimino's response? "Go fuck yourself." According to Final Cut, the book Steven Bach wrote on the making of it, the executives fought him every step of the way against casting Huppert, finally giving up when they realized that he was infatuated with her and that if they didn't agree, he would walk.
