DIRECTOR: TERRENCE MALICK

CAST: JIM CAVIEZEL, SEAN PENN, NICK NOLTE, GEORGE CLOONEY, MATT DAMON, JOHN CUSACK, ADRIEN BRODY

After a more than twenty-year absence from cinema, Malick came roaring back with this sprawling, lyric adaptation of James Jones’ World War II novel, which follows an American platoon battling to take Guadalcanal from the entrenched Japanese. The terror and fury of combat, depicted with the inclusion of voice-over insights into the psychology of soldiers under life-or-death duress, coexists here with images of contemplative remove, placing battlefield violence within the larger context of nature. “If I never meet you in this life, let me feel the lack.”
