    Any force attempting to climb the hill can be easily cut down by machine-gun fire and mortar rounds. I can stand right here, and not-- one-- bullet! If you found the voice-overs heavy-handed, maybe it's because you're used to Hollywood telling us what to think and feel and thought Malick was doing the same. It's not just about war. Ever since my childhood I've moved through life with a second awareness -- that examination and self-examination while "real time" goes on. However, the atmosphere created by John Toll's breathtaking cinematography and Hans Zimmer's powerful score is occasionally compromised.

    You set me free. His widow, Gloria, died on June 9, It is also commemorated in the assembly hall of Campbell's former school, High School of Glasgowwhere there is a painting of the action hung in the grand position, a tribute to one of the school's two generals, the other being Sir John Moorewho was killed at Corunna during the Peninsular War. Does nature suffer from war at least as much as humans? The whole fucking thing's about property.

    It failed to win any of these awards. The director refused to subject his film to test screenings before delivering his final cut. The director played the music on the set, while filming, to get himself, and the rest of the crew and actors in the right frame of mind. Watch again and see if he's not just giving us access to various individuals' often conflicting perspectives. Even the guy Dale who ripped gold teeth out of the mouths of dying Japanese soldiers was no stereotypical villain -- he has his moment of grace as do they all. Mockin' us with the sight of what we might've known.
