Chris’ Film Club - The Thin Red Line

Today, in 1942, the Battle of Guadalcanal began. This was the first major Allied offensive against the Japanese in WW2. Terrence Malick’s film is based on James Jones’ fictional book based around that campaign.It has a huge cast, including George Clooney, Woody Harrelson, Sean Penn, Adrien Brody, John Travolta, Nick Nolte and Jim Caviezel. Many more great actors were left on the cutting room floor.Long and gorgeous, it is one of the great war films.
