THE THIN RED LINE
1998, 20th Century Fox, 170 min, Dir: Terrence Malick

Director Terrence Malick’s adaptation of James Jones’ novel is an intensely poetic story of paradise lost in the South Pacific during WWII, a cosmic vision of man at war with himself and nature. With a mind-boggling cast including Sean Penn, Adrien Brody, Jim Caviezel, George Clooney, Woody Harrelson, Elias Koteas, Nick Nolte and John C. Reilly.


THE LAST DAYS ON MARS
2013, Magnet Releasing, 98 min, UK / Ireland, Dir: Ruairi Robinson

On the first manned mission to Mars, an astronaut discovers fossilized evidence of bacterial life. But when crew members begin to vanish, the rest of the team wonders if the lifeform they have discovered is not yet dead, and the group falls apart as it awaits a relief ship. Starring Liev Schrieber, Elias Koteas, Romola Garai and Olivia Williams, LAST DAYS is a lean, muscular and fast-moving genre picture that shows that science fiction smartly done on a budget can hold its own with anything.
