Movie Mezzanine

One of the most harrowing of anti-war statements, and the most beautiful too.

Lyrical, meditative and original, Malick's WWII film is one of the best war films ever made.

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

In the midst of life we may be in death, but the opposite is true as well.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Though it is not only a great war film, perhaps not even primarily a great war film, it is assuredly a great war film.

...so gorgeous it feels as if it's being seen through heavenly eyes - at least until fresh hell rips across the screen.

Lessons of Darkness

Ultimately concerned less with specific tactical maneuvers or combat suffering than with the grand contradictions of life.

It's a genuinely epic ciné-poem that essentially sidesteps history, politics and conventional ethics to deal with war as an absolute, inevitable and eternal facet of existence.

The Thin Red Line would have been infinitely more successful without the frequent rest-stops full of mental malaise and philosophical pretense.

Looking Closer

It makes you think and ask questions. Its characters contradict themselves, talking one way, acting another. And it ends abruptly, with many things unresolved. Like life.

Won't be a commercial hit, but it will rank at the top of my list of best movies of 1998.
