    Jan 15,  · Now I am at the crossroads of life and The Thin Red Line. This movie just does it for me. The fact that the whole story is told through poetry is quite a unique thing to do.

    Dec 20,  · In that gruesome stretch sixty thousand Americans made the jump from boat to beach, and one in nine did not return. James Jones fought in that battle, and The Thin Red Line is his haunting portrait of men and war. The soldiers of C-for-Charlie Company are not cast from the heroic mold/5(32). THE THIN RED LINE by Terrence Malick Based on the Novel by James Jones USE FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. To the Memory of James Jones And Those Who Served With Him They Live With Us. It was an act of love. Those men on the line were my family, my home. They were closer to me than I can say, closer than my friends had been or ever would be.

    Jan 08,  · "The Thin Red Line" feels like an extension of the second film, in which a narrator muses on the underlying tragedy that is sometimes shown on the screen, sometimes implied. Both films are founded on a transcendental sense that all natural things share their underlying reality in the mind of God.3/4. The Thin Red Line is an absolutley magnificent exploration into the strong and basic connections between all mankind. This film offers some of the most interesting and compelling dialog ever to grace the screen as well as the beloved kind of insightful character developement that has become such a scarcity in the film world today.4/5.
