I can’t believe the Academy watched both this and Saving Private Ryan and still chose the latter for best cinematography. Thin Red Line is BEAUTIFUL, definitely up there with Days of Heaven in terms of how Malick visualizes nature and a character’s surroundings.
I loved Malick’s take on war. Movies often emphasize soldiers as “heroes” or “legends” but in the moment... they’re all equals. Both the ‘enemy’ and our soldiers. We’ll all die. We’re all scared. We’re all being led…
Boyhood (dir. Richard Linklater) stars Ellar Coltrane as Mason Jr. from the ages of 6-18. During the film, we experience the little moments of his life, as well as memories that will have lasting impacts long after the movie ends.

I don’t really understand why people find this movie inspirational, I’m gonna be honest. This is not the life anyone should want to live. What’s sad is that Mark isn’t a bad director at all; He’s creative and his films looked good (his social awkwardness not included...), it’s a shame when the American dream doesn’t come true.
I definitely think this is a great study of an American life and the struggles we all have. I think the film’s length was a bit longer than needed but I really liked the ending. It’s definitely worth a watch!
Reminds me of Se7en in a lot of ways... it’s dark and feels almost hopeless.
Despite this, it’s completely engaging from start to finish. The performances are all amazing and I often found myself trying to solve the mystery along with the detectives.
I’m failing at expressing my thoughts on this because it’s so fresh in my brain. Bong does a phenomenal job directing this feature, it’s honestly right up there with Parasite for me. An absolute must see.
Christian Bale goes all out in his most transformative role yet
