Critic Reviews of "The Thin Red Line"Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
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.Hollywood ReporterJanuary 01, 2000
An uncannily timed movie phenomenon!Los Angeles TimesJanuary 01, 2000
A haunting, scattered reminiscence piece, where the mind is allowed to drift through its memories, and retrieve impressions of the beautiful and the hideous, the serene and the hysterical, the banal and the profound.NewsweekJanuary 01, 2000
A film of brilliant pieces and dazzling shots!San Jose Mercury NewsJanuary 01, 2000
Viewers will get lost in the wanderings of this dreamlike movie!Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
The thinking person's Saving Private Ryan.Movie MezzanineFebruary 21, 2014
One of the most harrowing of anti-war statements, and the most beautiful too.EmanuelLevy.ComMay 06, 2012
Lyrical, meditative and original, Malick's WWII film is one of the best war films ever made.Not Coming to a Theater Near YouOctober 14, 2011
In the midst of life we may be in death, but the opposite is true as well.Antagony & EcstasyJune 08, 2011
Though it is not only a great war film, perhaps not even primarily a great war film, it is assuredly a great war film.LarsenOnFilmMay 13, 2011
...so gorgeous it feels as if it's being seen through heavenly eyes - at least until fresh hell rips across the screen.Lessons of DarknessMay 11, 2011
Ultimately concerned less with specific tactical maneuvers or combat suffering than with the grand contradictions of life.
