Terrence Malick Stany Zjednoczone, 1998

Blue K, Custodian of the Cinema's rating of the film The Thin Red Line

I just re-watched this on Blu-Ray on 52", and it was as poignant an experience as it had been 10 years (!!!) ago in the theater. There are imperfections--Malick idealizes the Melanesians as the noble savage (as he did with the Native Americans in The New World) and the overuses voiceovers when silence would be preferred. Yet, in spite of these flaws, it remains one of the most powerful antiwar films ever made.
