The Thin Red Line is a sensuous experience: it deserves 35mm Panavision on a huge screen. (Does that mean it can hardly be known again?) But there’s something else contradictory in the ending. Malick exults in the island being above the conflict in the natural world that will persist after our fuss ends. That closeness to insignificance is touching. But then one has to realise that the cinematography is ‘magnificent’, that these men are star faces, that Malick’s very reticence is ‘artistic’.

The blurring of the boundary between self and other can give rise to the solace that ‘life is at the bottom of things, despite all the changes in appearance, indestructibly powerful and pleasurable.’ (25) Our lives and deaths may be impersonally swallowed in the current, yet we are fleetingly a part of the continuity of life. In The Thin Red Line this is reflected via evocative and spiritualised notions of ‘all things shining’ and ‘the glory’ of existence.

Marking an end to Terrence Malick’s twenty plus years of hibernation, THE THIN RED LINE is less a war film than a full-fledged existential inquiry into, well, everything. It’s the kind of film that one could build an entire PHIL 101 curriculum around, grappling with essential questions about divine providence, the soul, the value of a single human life, and the origins of good vs. evil.
