The Thin Red Line, 20th Anniversary Screening

Sponsored by: Treasures from the Yale Film Archive

Join us for a 20th anniversary screening of Terrence Malick’s World War II epic THE THIN RED LINE. Nominated for seven Academy Awards, the film stars Sean Penn, Adrien Brody, Jim Caviezel, Ben Chaplin, George Clooney, John Cusack, Woody Harrelson, Elias Koteas, Nick Nolte, John C. Reilly, and John Travolta. Michael Wilmington of the Chicago Tribune called it “one of the most curious and perversely brilliant films ever made,” while Jack Matthews of the Los Angeles Times described it as “a haunting, scattered reminiscence piece, where the mind is allowed to drift through its memories, and retrieve impressions of the beautiful and the hideous, the serene and the hysterical, the banal and the profound.” 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

A presentation of the Yale Film Study Center and Films at the Whitney with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
