TERRENCE MALICK
(1943 - ), American

Image

"Since he made only four movies in 30 years, Terrence Malick's filmography is one of the slimmest in cinema history - yet each film is considered among the finest of its genre. All four films directed by the enigmatic Malick are concerned with the corruption of innocence, the mythic expulsion from Eden, and the American propensity to violence... Each of these ravishing, meticulously crafted films is ironic, fatalistic, and allusive, with a variety of narrative strands, all dealing with the same situations from different viewpoints."
- Film: Eyewitness Companion

"Malick is the modern American cinema's great poet-philosopher, whose images, painstakingly perfectionist in their historical accuracy yet imbued with the timelessness of myth, speak of a fascination with - and perhaps, faith in - the transcendent."
- The Director's Vision

1973 Badlands

Criterion should have packed Fleshlights and vibrators with their Thin Red Line Blu-Ray just to complete the effect it has on all its viewers.

Definitely. Knowing the characters' concerns before they are blatantly revealed is a big part of what made this last viewing so great (along with the gorgeous images).

Only saw Badlands and Days Of Heave. Days Of Heaven is definitely one of the most beautifully shot movies I have ever seen.

Can't wait for The Thin Red Line.
