Malick's best film

"At this moment, I didn't feel shame or fear, but just kind of blah, like when you're sitting there and all the water's run out of the bathtub."

Terrence Malick's masterful debut feature, Badlands is a deliberately-paced thriller of immense power and striking visual lyricism. The picture was produced for a paltry $300,000, and is loosely based on the real-life killing spree of Charl... read more

A classic

I had actually already seen this flick. If I recall it correctly, I saw it about 10 years ago when I was living in England. Back then, I wasn’t really familiar with Terrence Malick and I watched this flick because it was considered as a masterpiece. Nowadays, I have seen most of the movies directed by Malick and I thought it was time to revisit his directing debut. Unfortunately, even this secon... read more

1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die (1970's) (158 movies items)

" Notes: To be honest, even after watching this movie twice, I still wasn’t exactly blown away by the whole thing. The main issue I had back then and still have is that the characters were rather aimless, emotionless, filled with a guastly void. As a result, I thought it was really difficult to connect with them and their boredom was highly contagious. Still, like all the work done by Terrence Malick, there was something quite fascinating about this flick. Indeed, I loved the way he always cha"

" Cast : Martin Sheen, Sissy Spacek What was it about? An impressionable teenage girl from a dead-end town and her older greaser boyfriend embark on a killing spree in the South Dakota badlands. My two cents: If I recall it correctly, the first time I watched this movie, it was more than10 years ago when I was living in England. Back then, I wasn’t really familiar with Terrence Malick and I watched this flick because it was considered as a masterpiece. Nowadays, I have seen all the movies "

"3.5. DVD Uusintakatselu, ei muutoksia. Tässä kävi sitten taas näin, uusintakatselmuksia jälleen luvassa. Teini-iässä loppuun kulutettu, pitkän tauon jälkeen näemmä edelleen se mestariteos, joksi olin sen muistoissani kullannut. Visuaalisesti upea ja tunnelmaltaan melkolailla maaginen, unenomainen balladi. Kamera ei varsinaisesti viipyile, mutta tallentaa jokaisen hetken niin ikimuistoisen maalauksellisesti, että on kuin huippuvalokuvaajan kollaasia katselisi. Näissä kuvissa kylm"
