The Thin Red Line

The Thin Red Line ★★★★

I was curious to see how Malick depicts war in his film, and the end result is exactly what I expected. The Thin Red Line is a contemplative and poetic meditation on the destructive and soullessness of war. In true Malick fashion, nature is placed in the forefront of the film showcased through the stunning landscapes and cinematography. The violence is brutal and gut-wrenching. It's a beautiful film, but I do wish it was maybe like 60 minutes shorter.
