Malick's take on a war film is one of the most visionary and philosophical epics ever produced by a major Hollywood studio.

The Thin Red Line is an adaptation of a novel about the World War II battle for Guadalcanal published by James Jones in 1962. Malick's film moves its all-star cast to the sidelines to focus on man’s relationship to nature and violence, and the result is a multifaceted look at the experience of combat. Martin Scorsese called this uniquely sublime war picture the second greatest film of the 1990s. With Sean Penn, Adrien Brody, James Caviezel, Nick Nolte, and George Clooney. (171 mins., 35mm)
