A very good movie

When this movie was released, there was a pretty good buzz about it so I thought I should check it out. Back in those days, I didn't know who was Terrence Malick and haven't heard about the legends surrounding him but I sure loved this movie. I must have been 18-19 years old and I had never seen something like that, this mix of metaphysics and war and I was quite blown-away. Fast-forward 15 years ... read more

A soundtrack that compliments well with its philosophical messages, this Malick film is a work of art. Every shot was like a painting in motion, and I loved how involved nature is in this war.

"The Thin Red Line" es sin ninguna duda el mejor modelo a seguir a la hora de crear una historia de guerra. La historia trata acerca de la toma de la isla de Guadalcanal por el ejercito estadounidense durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. No hay un protagonista en especifico, está protagonizada por varios personajes, cada uno con una historia y motivaciones distintas. Aquí entraría mi única queja... read more

The Thin Red Line tells the story of a group of men, an Army Rifle company called C-for-Charlie, who change, suffer, and make essential discoveries about themselves during the fierce World War II battle of Guadalcanal. It follows their journey, from the surprise of an unopposed landing, through the bloody battles that follow.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1036 movies items)

" One of two World War II films released in 1998, this one based on a novel by James Jones, with the narrative being about the cost of war. onpeople’s psyche and nature. Even though, Saving Private Ryan was a box office success, and a critical one, some found that The Thin Red Line to be the better film, given that it takes it time, and you get the existential experience of war, on the people who fight it. Other found it, ponderous and meandering, but still epic and visually breathtaking. "

Terrence Malick's masterpiece

“As I said in my Tree of Life review Terrence Malick's style is one I highly appreciate rather than adore. That doesn't stop me though from liking his films a great deal. The Thin Red Line was my first Malick, and after seeing five of them it is still my favourite.The pace is meditative, but I had no problem with that. This film wasn't only a war film, it was also a meditation of war, so the pacing was appropriate I feel, not only that I find this meditative pace is a characteristic of Terrence Malick, his films being visually beautiful yet meditative.As is the case with his work, Malick does do a superb job directing, the visuals are astounding and the music is very haunting as well. The story may seem pretentious, but I was too transfixed and absorbed by what was going on to care, and how” read more

"4.12. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Sotkumies Ryanille sulka hattuun myös muistuttamisesta, että samana vuonna valmistui toinenkin pieni WWII-elokuva, jota sattumalta olen aina pitänyt mestariteoksena. Niin nytkin. Visuaalista hienoutta ei voi liiaksi kehua. Taistelutilanteet tuntuvat realistisilta ja niissä näkyy sekä sotilaiden erilaisuudet että tilanteen kammottavuus niitä korostamatta. Pahoja tekoja tai sodan luonnetta ei myöskään tarvitse alleviivata, luonto sekä ihmisen sisin reago"

The Most Spiritually Affecting Buddhist Movies (6 movies items)

"The Thin Red Line. Terrence Malick's triumphant return to filmmaking is not explicitly about Buddhism, but in both its quietly observant tone and its subject matter, it is very relevant to core Buddhist ideas. Ostensibly about the invasion of Guadalcanal by American soldiers during World War II, the film is really a spiritual meditation (pun intended) on the forces of cruelty and peace, and on the possibility of transcending violence through the power of mind and sacrificial action. Many char"
