Terrence Malick Stany Zjednoczone, 1998

smndvdcl's rating of the film The Thin Red Line

Shifts of empathy usurped from solitary protagonists arrest the spectator. Their internal poetic soliloquies gain a psychopathic nihilism through the obedient brutality of their war crimes. The banality of war and its orders of rank; a cause fuelled by increasingly ambiguous notions of patriotism. Mordant yearnings and infernal echoes of traumatised and jaded survivalists. An anti-war ode to the dehumanised.
