171

Summary: "Four stars" (New York Daily News). Acclaimed director Terrence Malick (Badlands, Days of Heaven) made his long-awaited return behind the camera for this thoughtful, visually stunning World War II picture. Malick's screenplay--adapted from James Jones' novel--surrounds the U.S. efforts to take over the Japanese-controlled island of Guadalcanal. At its center is an allegorical look at man and nature from the perspective of individuals fighting their own private wars--a pacifistic private, a tough-as-nails First Sgt. (Sean Penn), a gung-ho colonel leading his first mission and a gutsy commander who refuses to send his men into certain death. Also with Adrien Brody, Jim Caviezel, Ben Chaplin, George Clooney, John Cusack, Woody Harrelson, Elias Koteas, Nick Nolte and John C. Reilly. Directed by Terrence Malick; screenplay by Terrence Malick, based upon the novel by James Jones. (R) (AC,AL,N,V)
