Item description for The Cinema of Terrence Malick : Poetic Visions of America (Directors' Cuts) by Hannah Patterson...

Terrence Malick is one of Hollywood's most enigmatic and legendary film-makers. Despite his limited output, and a famous twenty-year absence from cinema, Badlands, Days of Heaven and The Thin Red Line have challenged genre expectation and redefined notions of contemporary film language.

This collection explores his work from a series of vantage points, encompassing issues of identity, the poetics of cinema, representation of the road, youth culture and the American West, depiction of landscape and nature, use of sound and music, and the influence of philosopher Martin Heidegger. Particular emphasis is placed on The Thin Red Line, Malick's haunting evocation of human suffering during World War II, an important classic of modern cinema. Tracing his unique and under-explored film-making style from the 'golden age'of Hollywood to the present, each essay provides innovative ways of reading his films, thus highlighting the significance this truly original director.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Cinema of Terrence Malick : Poetic Visions of America (Directors' Cuts)?

Mildly revealing  Apr 17, 2007
This book is really a discussion of the filmmaker's work by academicians, and contains no direct input from the enigmatic artist, or information about the source or inspiration of his material, or his way of working. But fans of his films will probably enjoy being immersed in the discussions, even if the films are over-analyzed.
