  • Description

    After directing two of the most extraordinary movies of the 1970s, Badlands and Days of Heaven, American artist TERRENCE MALICK disappeared from the film world for twenty years, only to resurface in 1998 with this visionary adaptation of James Jones’s 1962 novel about the World War II battle for Guadalcanal. A big budget, spectacularly mounted epic, The Thin Red Line is also one of the most deeply philosophical films ever released by a major Hollywood studio, a thought provoking meditation on man, nature, and violence. Featuring a cast of contemporary cinema’s finest actors—SEAN PENN (Dead Man Walking, Milk), NICK NOLTE (The Prince of Tides, Affliction), ELIAS KOTEAS (Zodiac, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), and WOODY HARRELSON (Natural Born Killers, The People vs. Larry Flynt) among them—The Thin Red Line is a kaleidoscopicevocation of the experience of combat that ranks as one of cinema’s greatest war films.
