FiC Rating: 5/5
Dir: Terrence Malick
Why FiC recommends?
1) 1998 witnessed two important war movies. One was nominated for 7 academy awards and won none; the other one was nominated for 11 and won 7. To my surprise The Thin Red Line has had a greater impact on me compared Saving Private Ryan (please stress the term ‘compared to’). But as usual ‘popularity’ works differently.
2) The Thin Red Line encompasses the moral uncertainty, deep sense of existentialism that soldiers had to go through during the conclusive days of Guadalcanal war between America and Japan.
