The Thin Red Line

Dir. Terence Malick (1998). Terence Malick’s hugely ambitious, austerely hallucinated adaptation of James Jones’s 500-page account of combat in Guadalcanal is a metaphysical platoon movie in which battlefield confusion is melded with an Emersonian meditation on the nature of nature—despairing, detached, and weirdly serene in the face of horror.
