    1 thought on “Terrence Malick”

    1. Overall some strong thinking within this book, although I fear The Thin Red Line gets short-shrifted in the context of Michaels' analysis of Malick's oeuvre. The author often alludes to The Tree of Life – a film not completed in time for this publication – and, as such, a second edition featuring additional, relevant commentary would help round out this volume.

    2. Hubert Dreyfus's contribution makes this a vital read to understand the concept of "world" in Malick's The Thin Red Line.
