The Thin Red Line
Dir. Terence Malick (1998). Terence Malicks hugely ambitious, austerely hallucinated adaptation of James Joness 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 naturedespairing, detached, and weirdly serene in the face of horror.
