Movie Reviews

New York Daily News - 10/10 by Elizabeth Weitzman Here is something great and startling -- not necessarily the kind of comforting, consensus-creating film that wins Oscars, but unquestionably a movie that will live in the history of the medium.
San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by Mick LaSalle Unique and courageous. It may be counted as one of the year's few steps forward in cinema.
TNT RoughCut - 10/10 by Graham Verdon This just may be the greatest war movie ever made.
Time - 9/10 by Richard Corliss The film is a gorgeous garland on an unknown soldier's grave.
Village Voice - 9/10 by J. Hoberman As mystical as it is gritty, as despairing as it is detached.
Washington Post - 9/10 by Michael O'Sullivan The disturbing ideas it plants in the soil of the soul need time and darkness ? not light ? to germinate.
Mr. Showbiz - 9/10 by Richard T. Jameson It's the awesome, metaphysically charged spectacle of man doing terrible things to man within the multicolored and multifarious cathedral of Nature.
Film.com - 9/10 by Tom Keogh Misshapen but magnificent vision of a soulful quest -- in the thick of misery and fear -- for the meaning of our lives.
Film.com - 9/10 by John Hartl Could be called the "Red Badge of Courage" of World War II movies.
Film.com - 8/10 by Norman Green The Thin Red Line attempts to soar much nearer to the sun than "Ryan." Its imagery aims at our souls. It wrestles with complexity, speaks to us in poetry, weaves multiple narrative strands into a tapestry, opens the festering wounds of war and gazes inside without blinking.
Slate - 8/10 by David Edelstein No movie in the last decade has succeeded in psyching out critics and audiences as fully as the powerful, rambling war epic The Thin Red Line.
Newsweek - 8/10 by David Ansen Juxtaposes beauty and horror to fashion a savage and lyrical cinematic poem.
