Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
THE THIN RED LINE
20th Century Fox,
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.
Dir: Scott Cooper
The gritty new thriller from director Scott Cooper (CRAZY HEART) stars Christian Bale as Russell Baze, a steel mill worker in a declining Rust Belt town. When his younger brother (Casey Affleck) runs afoul of a crime ring and vanishes, local police prove ineffectual, and Russell embarks on a dangerous quest for justice. The top-flight cast includes Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Zoe Saldana and Sam Shepard.
Dir: Milos Forman
Millionaire pornographer Larry Flynt may seem an unlikely subject for a biopic, but in the hands of director Milos Forman and screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, his life and legal battles brilliantly illuminate the continuing American conflict between free speech and censorship. The outstanding cast is led by Woody Harrelson as the Hustler magazine founder, rocker Courtney Love as doomed stripper Althea Leasure and Edward Norton as attorney Alan Isaacman.
