Directed by Terrence Malick, The Thin Red Line is a hauntingly picturesque look at the Battle of Mount Austen in the Pacific Theater of World War II. A fictionalized account, the film puts a poetic spin on the tried and true war movie than makes the the themes of morality and mortality feel palpable. Not to mention, it boasts an impressively stacked cast of today's A-listers.  —TA
