    It's amazing how director Terrence Malick manages to bring about a very lyrical way of portraying life and death. A unique war film, unlike others that are jingoistic. The applied technique of multiple narrations perfected the film, something that enables the audience to metaphorically hear both sides of the story. Not every soldier has a thirst for the enemy's blood, but not every soldier is as patriotic as another. Every man definitely fights his own war. 4 years 10 months ago

    A rare inside look at war and battle from the hearts of men who lay their lives down in them. Beautiful cinematography and superb acting from a large and mostly underestimated cast, as some of the best performances come from relatively unknown actors. Both tragic and poetic, philosophical and gritty, but never preachy or complacent.
    Some will be put off by the length but there's not a wasted scene.

    La cinematografía está muy pero muy buena, al igual que las actuaciones (con un elenco así, cómo no). Sin embargo, el "mensaje" lo encontré obvio y condescendiente, al menos en la forma en que es entregada como polifonía de narraciones en tono reflexivo. Muy aclamada, supongo que no es mi tipo de película. 2 years 1 month ago
