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.

Meandering and self indulgent.

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.

nick_s - How I'd love to live in a world where this was an "averagely well-made war film." In this world, in terms of sheer filmmaking (cinematography, editing, directing, script, etc.) this is one of the greatest war films ever made. You may not like the story being told, or the way it's told - and that's perfectly fine - but in no way is it "averagely well-made."

Pretentious and self-indulgent, despite gun battles and lush cinematography. I got the feeling that a lot of things that worked in the novel just didn't translate well to the screen (hence the voiceovers and the nearly three hour running length).

Malick's masterwork and one of the best films ever made, in my humble opinion.

"Beautiful" and compelling war drama, just too many characters and familiair faces show up and do nothing. But great one.

Truly an amazing film, with only a 7.5 on IMDB i think it's very underrated!

That's not a ranking, The Berlin Internation Film Festival list is chronological. The highest ranking is #79, and in my opinion calling The Thin Red Line the 79th best film ever made is not underrating.
