Asks Miller whether the war movies, particularly William Wellman's "Battleground," and others being shown during the first years of World War II had any effect on the young men watching them on the home front. Asks about whether aspects of the war as he experienced it were accurately portrayed in post-war films." {IIPA]

"From realism to virtual reality: images of America's wars." (representations of wars in America) The Georgia Review Spring 1994 v48 n1 p47(18)
"American wars are being portrayed as action adventures inmodern day television representations. The photographic images of thegruesome reality of war captured during the Civil War and the Vietnam War are no longer allowed. The military's active censorship during the Grenada, Panama and Gulf wars ensured that the American people did notsee anything shocking. Hollywood has contributed to the distancing bymaking movies which have reversed the reality of the Vietnam war. Movies such as 'The Deer Hunter' and 'The Escape' have manipulated the image of General Nguyen Ngoc Loan shooting a Viet Cong prisoner." [Expanded Academic Index]

Japanese war films and home front propaganda movies featured women rarely and encouraged asceticism on both male and female. Women were depicted as strong and willing to sacrifice personal comforts and her own family for the war effort. Military values were encouraged and team effort was emphasized over individual heroics. However, the interracial romance movies provided the emotional break from the ascetic approach with themes on foreign love interests, femininity and an almost Hollywood approach tofilm.

Hollywood goes to war [videorecording]
Media Resources Center VIDEO/C 6157
The outbreak of World War I provided Hollywood with one of its greatest sources of plots - and profits. As the American mood shifted away from neutrality, Hollywood followed, abandoning films with pacifist themes for stories of war at the front. With the arrival of peace, war films vanished until King Vidor made The Pig Parade in 1925, followed by What Price Glory and All quiet on the Western Front.

"W war." (war films) Sight and Sound v8, n4 (April, 1998):28 (3 pages).
World War I and II had significant impacts in the world's motion pictures industry. These two wars had effected the dominance of Hollywood over European cinema and bore witness to the numerous technological innovations of the industry that include the magnetic recording tape and the lightweight 16mm film cameras. More importantly, the wars had primarily shaped the plots of movies to tackle heroism, masculinity and the value ofwar itself.

British war films of the 1950s, which generally glorified Allied achievements of World War II, were shown during the last period in which the country's cinema could be said to have a national audience and had much box office appeal. In 1959, 14.5 mil people weekly were in theaters in Britain, a figure that was greater than the number of homes with television sets and almost equal to the total circulation of all national daily newspapers. In the '50s war features were still black and white and in traditional screen dimensions as a deliberate policy to maintain the look of films made during war years. Wartime film might be spliced in.

"Cinema and the Civilizing Process: Rethinking Violence in the World War II Combat Film." Cinema Journal, vol. 44, no. 3, pp. 35-63, Spring 2005.
UC users only
This essay proposes an alternative critical approach to the "violence" of the World War II combat film. Guiding this approach is the idea of a "civilizing process" that attends both to specific representations in war films and to the institutional role of cinema in socializing and regulating individual behavior. The theoretical grounding here is the sociological work of Norbert Elias, whose major study, The Civilizing Process, was first published in 1939.

The development and spread of photography, cinema and television had agreat impact on the public's conception of war. Images of war in the early20th century centered around military parades, troops embarking and disembarking, and clearly contrived 'action' scenes. World War I was extensively documented, but most of the footage projects the trauma of meaningless disaster and was used only in a few memorable films such as' All Quiet on the Western Front' and 'Le Croix de Bois,' unlike the cinematic treatment of World War II, which usually embodies a message ofhope. Since then, especially with regard to Vietnam and the Cold War, the celluloid media have influenced people's attitudes toward war.

"The "New Patriotism" that has appeared in recent Americans films is not a revival of older, reassuring versions of patriotic fervor and ideological conviction. In actuality, the "New Patriotism" can be seen as a repudiation of sentimental and ideological concepts that put nation and cause ahead of individual survival. The "New Patriotism" celebrates, in essence, loyalty to one's comrades in battle, the ability to survive the horrific face of modern hyper-lethal weaponry and warfare, and the shared experience of battle. Films such as The Patriot, Saving Private Ryan, We Were Soldiers, and Black Hawk Down do not revive patriotism so much as turn it inside out so that the private motivations and goals of the individual soldier superscede any stated or understood national or public rationales for whatever war is being fought."

"The Korean War film as family melodrama: 'The Bridges at Toko-Ri' (1954)." Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television v19, n3 (August,1999):359 (1 page).
Korean War films are some of the most substantial movies that vividly reflects the values learned from man's history. These films do not only depict the tragic death of thousands of soldiers and civilians, but also reflect the terror brought by communist forces. Among all the Korean War movies produced, 'The Bridges at Toko-Ri' may be deemed one of the most outstanding. Despite the tragedy conveyed by the event, the film presents a melodramatic presentation of a country's stand for independence.

Issues discussed concern the portrayal of combat in prime time television in the US during the Vietnam War. The television programs 'Combat,' 'The Rat Patrol,' and 'MASH' are contextualized within America's changing attitudes towards the war, and the programs' themes that supported or condemned the military are detailed.

Films set in the Korean War of 1950-1953 portrayed American prisoners of war (POWs) in a different manner. While films on Vietnam and World War II emphasized the adventures and heroism of American POWs, Korean POW films focused on collaboration with the enemy. Such feature films as 'Prisoner of War,' (1954) 'The Bamboo Prison' (1954), 'The Rack' (1956) and 'The Manchurian Candidate' (1962) promoted the concept of brainwashing as one of the reasons behind the widespread collaboration involving American soldiers imprisoned in Korea.

"'Land and Freedom,' a film based on the Spanish Civil War, has confirmed the position of Ken Loach as Britain's greatest film maker of the contemporary era. This is Loach's first European co-production. Like most of his earlier films, in 'Land and Freedom,' also, there is a close interaction between the personal and the political. There has been no attempt to romanticize the Spanish landscape and all through the film it remains an area for action." [Expanded Academic Index]

Several films sought to portray or explain Franco. The polyhedric 'Old Memory' (1977) is the best of the documentaries on the Civil War." [Expanded Academic Index]

"Franco and the Filmmakers: Critical Myths, Transparent Realities." Film-Historia [Spain] 1995 5(2-3): 183-200.
"Considers how actual images of Francisco Franco have been used in films of varying views to construct, destroy, and/or reconstruct some version of a Franco myth. Although the author devotes his analysis primarily to two pairs of films - Jose Luis Senz deHeredia's Raza (Espiritu de una Raza) (1941) and Gonzalo Herralde's Raza, el Esp?ritu de Franco(1977) and Senz de Heredia's Franco, Ese Hombre(1964) and Basilio Martin Patino's Caudillo (1974-77)- he supplements the discussion with examples from propaganda films made during the Spanish Civil War and noticiarios documentales made later. At an obvious level, the films mentioned form natural antitheatrical pairs because of their starkly conflicting conceptions of Franco (as a divinely chosen, heroic leader or a deceptive, calculating tyrant); the latter film in each respective pair was made, in some degree, asa political response to the former. Yet these simple surface oppositions actually obscure many shared strategies of representation. For instance, the propagandistic use of both documentary as well as" fictional" images in these films raises important questions about how images can be used as evidence to construct accounts of past realities. The use of a certain kind of subversive myths to critique or dismantle other more traditional or naive myths( Patino's attempt in Caudillo, for example, to critique Senz de Heredia's earlier servile account of Franco's life by using similar documentary footage, re-edited, and with an ironic tone) encourages a reconsideration of some of the apparent distinctions by which "realistic" modes of representation (like documentary and history) overwhelm "imaginary" ones (like fiction and myth). Indeed, on the whole these films employ modes of representation in ways that challenge any simple distinctions we might make between "myth" and other more "credible" forms of representation. In examining these films, the author not only discusses the general mythology of Franco, but raises questions surrounding the use (often facile) of visual images as evidence in building, tearing down, and rebuilding the narratives through which historical figures and events are interpreted and understood. Raising such questions not only complicates some myths about Franco, but challenges some myths about myth making itself." [Historical Abstracts]

"British filmmaker Ken Loach's most recent film, 'Land and Freedom: A Story from the Spanish Revolution,' premiered in America at the New York Film Festival in 1995. Loach collaborated with the scriptwriter Jim Allen to create the narrative and place the political conflict within a personal perspective. The creation of the characters were based on the people Loach and Allen met in Spain." [Expanded Academic Index]

"Historical discourse and the propaganda film: reporting the revolution in Barcelona." New Literary History v29, n1 (Wntr, 1998):67 (18 pages).
"Reporting the 1936 revolution in Barcelona involved historical discourse and the propaganda film. The Nazis used the Spanish war to test military innovations for World War II, but they did not really experiment with propaganda techniques, given their unofficial participation. They offered their propaganda machinery to the insurgents in Spain, offering documents they got indirectly more than they did those visual ones from the field. Nazi film makes the medium a weapon and conceives of form itself as an event. Documentaries on Spain tried to stir up anxiety and to insinuate, dealing with stereotypical emotional responses."

"Ernest Hemingway regarded the Spanish Civil War as pitting the people against elites and foreign mercenaries, and he did much to present the Loyalist side to the American people with his 1937 documentary film The Spanish Earth and his novel For Whom the Bell Tolls. The novel conveys a populist attitude with an influence of Stalinism. His populism derived primarily from fondness for mass culture and folk culture and his appeal to a mass market during the interwar period." [Historical Abstracts]

The depiction of Amerasian children in Vietnam War films is examined. Examples of these films are 'Indochine,' 'China Gate' and 'Heaven and Earth'. Most Vietnam War films use victimization to arouse sympathy for the American soldiers to make it appear that they are the foremost victims ofthe Vietnam War. The purpose of these vietnam War films is not to inform the unwitting about the Amerasian or Eurasian reality but to exalt the U.S. victory in the Vietnam War.

American soldiers declared dead or lost in the Vietnamese war are resurrected in horror movies such as 'Deathdream' (1972), 'House' (1986),'Jacob's Ladder' (1990) and 'Universal Soldier' (1992). These movies negotiate the fascination with the missing, as well as anxieties about masculinity. The dead white male soldier, who is supposed to return, is depicted as an object of voyeurism and fetishism. People want to go back to he safer pre-war times, as they wish that the war had never happened and that men were not declared lost or dead.

"Debriding Vietnam: The Resurrection Of The White American Male." Feminist Studies 1988 14(3): 525-543.
Recent depictions of the Vietnam veteran reflect the reassertion of patriarchal values in American culture. The veteran is portrayed as the victim of agents or agencies characterized by traits associated with femininity: unpredictability, indecisiveness, weakness, and dependence. John Rambo in the Rambo films and Colonel Braddock in the film Missing in Action, by contrast, display an extravagant, rugged, white, male individualism that sets them apart from contemporary society as models of a masculinity that is not implicated in that society's failures.

Author's Abstract: COPYRIGHT 1989 Speech Communication Association. "The 1988 presidential campaign revealed that the Vietnam War remains a potentially volatile issue in American society. The mass mediated spectacle of Indiana Senator Dan Quayle's "National Guard problem" showed that Vietnam, to paraphrase private investigator Thomas Magnum, is always close to our heels. It suggested a potential ideological test for future political candidates drawn from the generation which fought, fought against, or avoided by various means "the war." Editorial writers and news commentators naively called upon the people "put Vietnam behind us," ignoring attempts by political factions (including academics) to provide closure to the war on terms consistent with specific, and opposing, visions of the nation. The dispute over Senator Quayle's fitness for high office positioned him as a representation of contradictions, an intersection if familar struggles. The following three essays contribute to the understanding of those struggles. In "Women Gender, and the War," Susan Jeffords examines the representation of women in Vietnam War literature and films within a context of changing gender relationships in American society. Jeffords argues that critical attention needs to be given to the structure of masculity and its relationship to warfare, a focus which emerges in James William Gibson's "Paramilitary Culture." Gibson identifies Rambo and Soldier of Fortune magazine as artifacts of "paramilitary culture," a culture he continues to observe ethnographically. Peter Ehrenhaus, whose ethnographic work focuses on the uses of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, evaluates the critical responses of communication scholars and others to "The Wall." His essay suggests future directions for research which attempts to explain the social function and ideological uses of this extraordinary site. These introductory remarks give me an opportunity to identify two mass media archieves of potential interest to readers who share research interests in Vietnam War representation. The University of Georgia's Peabody Collection: Vietnam on Television--Television on Vietnanm 1962-1975 contains the war-related news reports submitted by television producers for consideration in Peabody Award competitions spanning 13 years of American involvement in Vietnam. The collection includes network, local station, and international submissions, all reflecting changes in broadcasts news techniques and contemporary interpretations of the war. The William Joiner Center for the Study of War and Social Consequences, based at the Boston campus of the University of Massachusetts, houses all the records, scripts, and associated materials used in the production of the Public Broadcasting Service's documentary series Vietnam: A television History. This extensive collection includes the lectures and articles use in the so-called "Vietnam School" which oriented the production team. It also includes the complete transcripts of all interviews. The Joiner Center also maintains an extensive collection of Vietnamese documents captured by American forces during the war. These documents include military communications, soldiers' diaries, poetry, letters, and other items which are now being translated into English. The Joiner Center is currently sponsoring the translation of Vietnamese writer Le Luu's popular war novel, Days Gone By, and the center supports cultural and academic exchanges between Vietnamese and American institutions. There are indications that Vietnamese feature films may soon be available in the United States. Hawaii's East-West Center is providing subtitles for 6 to 10 Vietnamese films with the hope of distribution through the Uiversity of California at Los Angeles. The film are expected to be available in 1989. Vietnam's film industry produces a variety of feature films, documentariesm and animated films each year. Current films with war themes focus on domestic situations in which families deal with the war's aftermath. For example, The Court in Need of a judge (produced by United Films in Ho Chi Ming City) tells the story of a woman who gives birth to a deformed child, the result of her husband's exposure to Agent Orange during the war. Her husband insists on having another child, but the woman fears another pregnancy. She avoids intercourse, her husband becomes abusive, and she commits suicide. Ho Quang Minh's Karma focuses directly on a husband-wife relationship which is shattered by the war. Karma is the first film in a triology which will include films about the experience of a North Vietnamese soldier and his family and about an American soldier's experience, the first example of a cross-cultural attempt to interpret the war in film. Although combat film were very popular in Vietnam immediately following the war, very few current films represent combat. The introduction of Vietnamese films into university courses which deal with Vietnam War issues may encourage a greater interest in the Vietnamese experience of the war." [Expanded Academic Index]

America has a history of fearing its solders who return from the battlefields. The movies depicting Vietnamese veterans reflect this initial fear and the subsequent public attitude changes. Early films such as the1967 'Born Loser' depicted the vet as self destructive. Change in the political and social climate of the US caused attitude shifts and later films leaned away from the outcast character to one worthy of understanding such as in the film 'Born on the Fourth of July.' Several post-Vietnam war films are analyzed.

"Old History, New History, No History At All? The Vietnam War As Affirmation Of American Values."American Studies International 1990 28(2): 93-105.
American journalists, fiction writers, and filmmakers saw the Vietnam War through American eyes. Whereas European writers like Graham Greene considered the traditions and values of French colonial and indigenous Vietnamese culture, Americans considered them irrelevant. We are now remythologizing Vietnam and reinventing the war to discredit its victors. The film character Rambo brings America in Vietnam back to life, exhumes the war, and reverses history. Meanwhile, American consumerism is triumphing in a way American bombs could not. If we see Vietnam as a symbol of America's cultural supremacy in Third World regions, it bodes ill for the fate of small Third World countries.

"From Lt. Calley to John Rambo: Repatriating the Vietnam War." Journal of American Studies, vol. 27no. 1. 1993 Apr. pp: 88-92.
Commentators on the Vietnam War once defined atrocities like those committed at My Lai by William Calley's troops as an instance of the American masculine psyche running amok, but producers of motion pictures rejected this interpretation during the 1980's. At first, they portrayed Vietnam War veterans as warrior-heroes who became the nation's scapegoats for the war through no fault of their own. Finally, another Vietnam War film genre appeared with the release of Rambo: First Blood, Part II (1985). Avoiding atrocity issues and many other war-related realities, Rambo romanticized its warrior, mythologized warfare, and reclaimed for American soldiers their old place as giants in the geopolitical realm.

"Dialectical disorientation" is a rhetorical form that creates uncertainty and ambiguity through confrontation between two competitive and complementary orientations. This essay examines its dynamics in four films addressing the war in Vietnam: The Deer Hunter, Apocalypse Now, Platoon, and Full Metal Jacket. We argued that the works subvert traditional American war mythology. The films present the war as destructive rather than regenerative and purposeless rather thanmeaningful. This divisive scene creates a context in which principles governing behavior in war--militarism and moralism--become inoperative. The essay first details the development of disorientation in the films and then examines the rhetorical and social implications of the analysis.

"Paint It Black: Rock Music and Vietnam War Film. Journal of American Culture v15, n3 (Fall, 1992):53 (7 pages).
"Motion pictures made about the war in Vietnam contain differing amounts of the era's music, rock and roll, depending on their ideological focus. The changes in rock music echo the changes in American consciousness that came about during the 1960s. Films such as 'Full Metal Jacket' and 'Apocalypse Now' seek to use the subversive authority of the music to establish the apparent meaninglessness of the war." [Expanded Academic Index]

"United States - Vietnam Reconciliation in 1994." (feature films on the Vietnam War) National Forum v74, n4 (Fall, 1994):30 (4 pages).
Many Americans base their opinions on the Vietnam war on the vast array of Hollywood feature films about Vietnam. Countless debates have followed each new film on Vietnam, since the release of the highly controversial movie' Apocalypse Now' by Francis Ford Coppola. Some of the films that piqued the interest of viewers include 'Platoon,' 'Full Metal Jacket' and 'Heaven and Earth.'

"The film 'Jacknife', which was adapted from the play 'Strange Snow', addresses the results of the Vietnam conflict in the lives of three individuals, thus removing the issue from the societal level to the personal level. Moreover, the story is one of masculine redemption of one veteran by another, further removing the film from addressing the issues of the war. The film requires the conversion of the story to a drama with Hollywood's patriarchal outlook where one male character must dominate the female character in order to free the other male."

"Go Tell the Spartans, Apocalypse Now, and Hamburger Hill, three Hollywood Vietnam War films, offer depictions of the Vietcong and North Vietnamese that do not adhere solely to the yellow-peril stereotypes popularized in World War II combat films. While these films all contain portrayals of the Vietnamese enemy that are akin to the yellow-peril stereotypes, they are unique in that they also depict the enemy as Asian super soldiers with impressive fighting skill and will. However, despite granting the enemy at least a grudging respect, for better or worse, each of these films in its own way utilizes the super soldier to consider what the Vietnam War meant for the United States, whether to explain why the U.S. was doomed to lose in Vietnam, or to comment on the senselessness of the conflict. Consequently, their main focus is the signification of the war for the U.S." [Art Index]

Films set in the Korean War of 1950-1953 portrayed American prisoners of war (POWs) in a different manner. While films on Vietnam and World War II emphasized the adventures and heroism of American POWs, Korean POW films focused on collaboration with the enemy. Such feature films as 'Prisoner of War,' (1954) 'The Bamboo Prison' (1954), 'The Rack' (1956) and 'The Manchurian Candidate' (1962) promoted the concept of brainwashing as one of the reasons behind the widespread collaboration involving American soldiers imprisoned in Korea.

"Four films that address the issue of the returning war veteran are cited, including: (1) William Wyler's "The Best Years of Our Lives" (1946), (2) Fred Zinnemann's "The Men" (1950), (3) Hal Ashby's "Coming Home" (1978), and (4) Oliver Stone's "Born on the Fourth of July" (1989). Each deals with the experience of returning veterans from one of two conflicts, World War II or the Vietnam War. Popular culture leaves one with a sense that the experience for the Vietnam veteran was somehow different. Veteran experiences from a number of other conflicts are compared, and evidence from literature and history is examined." [IIPA]

John Wayne's 1968 Vietnam epic, 'The Green Berets,' was essentially a propaganda piece designed to build support for the war effort. Soldiers who saw action in Vietnam found the film laughably unrealistic, and critics derided it as unabashed agitprop, but the film was a box office success.

American soldiers declared dead or lost in the Vietnamese war areresurrected in horror movies such as 'Deathdream' (1972), 'House' (1986),'Jacob's Ladder' (1990) and 'Universal Soldier' (1992). These moviesnegotiate the fascination with the missing, as well as anxieties aboutmasculinity. The dead white male soldier, who is supposed to return, isdepicted as an object of voyeurism and fetishism. People want to go back tothe safer pre-war times, as they wish that the war had never happened andthat men were not declared lost or dead.

"Rambo agonistes." Literature-Film Quarterly v24, n4 (Oct, 1996):367 (9 pages).
The character portrayed by Sylvester Stallone in the first two Rambo films, "First Blood" and "Rambo: First Blood Part II", is an icon of individual heroism akin to Milton's depiction of Samson in "Samson Agonistes." The success these films enjoyed suggests that the Rambo character's mix of patriotic heroism, radicalism and mistrust of technology reflected some of the values of the movie-going public. "Rambo III" departed from the formula established in the first two films and was not as well-received.

"From Lt. Calley to John Rambo: repatriating the Vietnam War." Journal of American Studies v27, n1 (April, 1993):88 (5 pages).
The Rambo films complete the transition of Vietnam veterans from psycho-vets to wounded heroes and supermen. The films epitomize the warrior/king ideology because the main character John Rambo is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve his goal, an ends justify the means ideology, and yet the films carefully make all the people he kills evil. Rambo banishes the images of William Calley who led the My Lai 4 massacre with no justification at all. The films resolve the conflict between a violent masculine ideal and a social anti-killing attitude by making the violence simply a means to a higher goal.

"Terence Malick's film version of James Jones's novel The Thin Red Line contains additions and emendations that show Malick's clear, comprehensive understanding of Jones's literary corpus and authorial intentions. The film concentrates on the soldiers of Charlie Company fighting on Guadalcanal during World War II. In the opening sequence, Malick adds three scenes that, as Jones intended, conjoin the film with From Here to Eternity, the first novel in Jones's combat trilogy. Malick's touchstone is the notion of the "marked similarity" between the characters from the two novels, which allows them to remain "the same people as before." Moreover, though regarded by many as a gross violation of the text, his fascination with the image of the battlefield of Guadalcanal as "Paradise Lost, an Eden" violated by man is unquestionably in line with Jones's conception of nature as both a friend and foe to the men of Charlie Company. Malick thus imbues the screenplay with Jones's own rich voice." [Art Index]

"A review of The Thin Red Line, a movie written and directed by Terrence Malick. Set in the Pacific theater of operations during World War II, this movie, based on a novel by James Jones, luxuriates in a sense ofplace, not history or politics. Malick casts the war as background for a wide-eyed environmentalism that seems above the field of war and remembrance. The meandering story line concerns a company of American GIs--played by Nick Nolte, Elias Koteas, Sean Penn, and others--who are required to seize the high ground from an emplacement of Japanese machineguns. The characters are ill-defined, and a chorus of voice-overs by unusually eloquent and philosophical GIs does little to flesh out and individualize the personalities. The movie evokes the Vietnam combat genre, where the American soldier's worst enemy is his commanding officer and combat is always meaningless chaos." [Art Abstracts]

This extremely ambitious film features many characters and is set in 1942-43 when American and Japanese soldiers battled for control of the highly strategic island of Guadalcanal. Rather than being a film about a specific episode of World War II, The Thin Red Line focuses on the soldiers' individual and universal experience of war, and it is haunted by the idea of paradise lost."

" Breaking most commercial rules about narrative and drama, Terrence Malick's The Thin Red Line is still able to inscribe images with a depth and texture unrivalled in contemporary Hollywood. One of the finest line-ups of acting talent has been assembled for the movie, and the acting is superb. However, the movie is badly let down by a script that covers up an excellent 90-minute war film by a stream of pretentious, portentous, and sententious verbiage that is nothing more than a series of recycled cliches about nature and violence, death and sacrifice. Furthermore, the results of the voice-over sequences, spoken by adult males, are catastrophic in a film that is otherwise a magnificent accomplishment." [Art Abstracts]

Morrison, James.
"The Thin Red Line."(Critical Essay) Film Quarterly v53, n1 (Fall, 1999):35.
"Terrence Malick's The Thin Red Line is unique among American war films. Concentrating on a U.S. battalion's fight against the Japanese for a hill at Guadalcanal in World War II, this movie is both epic and deeply intimate, which Malick synthesizes through a mixture of close-up shots and sweeping panoramas. Its uniqueness derives from the fact that its critique of the ethos of war appears to come from a vantage point of utmost quiescence. The battle scenes, among the most powerful ever filmed, lack the excitement that is typical of the genre. Outright villainy is avoided, and even the hardest characters are portrayed with compassion. The use of voice-over, which adds to the construction of character, merges impersonal chronicle with stream-of-consciousness poetics. With a mournful rather than angry tone, there are few films that so convincingly represent the horror of war but, at the same time, resist the dialectics of conflict." [Art Abstracts]

"In an interview, cinematographer John Toll discusses his work on director Terrence Malick's film The Thin Red Line. This combat film is the story of a rifle company within the 25th Division of the U.S. Army, which arrived on Guadalcanal in November 1942 to reinforce the Marines in flushing out Japanese troops who had retreated into the territory's grassy hills. This historical event served as the backdrop in a semiautobiographical novel by James Jones on which reclusive director Terrence Malick based the screenplay for his haunting, elegiacal war drama. Toll discusses a range of topics in the interview, including howhe landed the assignment to photograph the film, his first impressions of Malick, the prep work he did for the film, the camera package used to shoot it, how he created the sensation of the film's subjective point of view, and how the experience of shooting on Guadalcanal affected him personally."

Adapted from James Jones's 1962 novel of the same name, thefilm follows the experiences of the men of Charlie Company, part of theAmerican forces charged with capturing the strategically significanttropical island of Guadalcanal from the Japanese in 1942-43. The movieis a type of lyric epic poem about the way men are permanently changed bythe experience of war, and it carefully balances romanticism anddispassion, action and introspection."
