    The Thin Red Line

    ★★★★★

    The brotherhood a battlefield forges, and the one it tears apart. Soldiers contemplating where they come from, and where they’re at. A war film that celebrates the beauty of life and the world, within the utter futility and devastation of war itself. Malick marries his sensual sensibilities to his otherworldly understanding of humanity/existence in this mesmerising film, philosophising not just death, but killing, and living too.

What a feast of a flick. Beyond blockbuster, has to be seen to be believed. Electrifying experience
