I've been lurking the board for a few weeks now.
In between >pleb and >patric in my opinion.
I agree that Malick can be pretentious at times, not necessarily a bad thing in my opinion because sometimes you have to be to make the kind of films that he wants to, especially in Tree of Life.
But I haven't seen much love for The Thin Red Line on /tv/. Hands down my favorite movies. I have seen it probably 11 or 12 times (dat 3 hour run length), and I love it more and more everytime. Are people just not loving this movie? This is the first anti-war movie that actually made me anti-war. Amazing cinematgraphy, good acting, amazing themes and symbols and message. Quality action sequences.
Am I wrong that people love this film and I'm just not seeing it, or do people actually not enjoy it? This is the one film where I am confident in my opinion that is truly an amazing critique of humanity and an amazing film, and those who say otherwise did not get it. Much better viewing the second and third time around.
