While the company is bivouacked, Staros is relieved of his command by Tall, who deems him too soft for the pressures of combat and suggests that he apply for reassignment and become a lawyer in the JAG Corps in Washington, D.
He offers to arrange a Silver Star for Staros, to avoid the unit's name being tarnished for having an officer removed from command.
During this time, Bell receives a letter from his wife, informing him that she has fallen in love with another man and seeks a divorce.
Witt, meanwhile, comes across some of the locals and notices that, unlike the idyllic life he'd shared with the Melanesian natives when he went AWOL, the villagers have grown distant and distrustful of outsiders, and regularly quarrel with each other.
Weeks later, the company is sent on patrol up a river under the command of the inexperienced Lieutenant Band. As Japanese artillery fire falls close to their positions and with communications severed, Band orders Corporal Fife and Private Coombs to scout upriver.
Witt, sensing danger, volunteers to go along. The three men encounter an advancing Japanese column, but as they attempt to retreat back to the company, they are fired upon and Coombs is wounded.
In order to buy time for Fife to go back to inform the rest of the unit, Witt draws away the Japanese but is encircled by one of their squads, who demand that he surrender.
Despite this, Witt raises his rifle to provoke them and is shot down. After Witt's body is recovered and buried by his squadmates, the company receives a new commander, Captain Bosche.
They are subsequently relieved of duty and board a waiting LCT , which evacuates them from Guadalcanal. Beyond these numerous top-billed cast, the ensemble included appearances in smaller roles by many other well-known actors, including Kirk Acevedo , Penny Allen , Mark Boone Junior , Matt Doran , Don Harvey , Danny Hoch , Thomas Jane , Miranda Otto , Donal Logue , and Nick Stahl.
The Thin Red Line by James Jones was adapted by Malick over the course of five months. New York -based producer Bobby Geisler first approached Malick in and asked him to direct a film adaptation of David Rabe 's play In the Boom Boom Room.
Malick declined the offer, but instead discussed the idea of a film about the life of Joseph Merrick. Once word got out about David Lynch 's film of The Elephant Man , he shelved the idea.
In , Geisler and John Roberdeau met with Malick in Paris about writing and directing a movie based on D.
Thomas ' novel The White Hotel. Malick began adapting The Thin Red Line on January 1, Five months later, the producers received his first draft, which was pages long.
According to an article in Entertainment Weekly , they gained the director's confidence by "catering to his every whim,"  providing him with obscure research material, including a book titled Reptiles and Amphibians of Australia , an audiotape of Kodo : Heartbeat Drummers of Japan , information on the Navajo code talkers recruited by the United States Marine Corps to communicate in their native Navajo language to evade understanding by Japanese troops intercepting radio transmissions, making his travel plans, and helping the director and his wife Michele get a mortgage for their Paris apartment.
The producers spent a lot of time talking with Malick about his vision of the film. Geisler said,. Much of the violence was to be portrayed indirectly.
A soldier is shot, but rather than showing a Spielbergian bloody face we see a tree explode, the shredded vegetation, and a gorgeous bird with a broken wing flying out of a tree".
Casting for the film became a hot topic. When Sean Penn met Malick, he told him, "Give me a dollar and tell me where to show up". In , once word went out that Malick was making another movie after many years, numerous actors approached him, flooding the casting directors until they had to announce they wouldn't be accepting more requests.
Some A-list actors including Brad Pitt , Al Pacino , Gary Oldman , and George Clooney offered to work for a fraction and some even offered to work for free.
Bruce Willis even went as far as offering to pay for first-class tickets for the casting crew, to get a few lines for the movie.
At Medavoy's home in , Malick staged a reading with Martin Sheen delivering the screen directions, and Kevin Costner , Will Patton , Peter Berg , Lukas Haas , and Dermot Mulroney playing the main roles.
Malick met with an interested Johnny Depp about the project at the Book Soup Bistro on the Sunset Strip. Edward Norton flew out to Austin and met Malick, who had been impressed by the actor's screen test for Primal Fear.
Matthew McConaughey reportedly took a day off filming A Time to Kill to see Malick. Malick went off to scout locations and tried calling Cage that summer only to find out that his phone number had been disconnected.
Tom Sizemore , however, was offered a more substantial role in Saving Private Ryan and, when he could not contact Malick for several days, decided to do Steven Spielberg 's film instead.
Malick wrote a part specifically for Oldman, but the character was eventually scrapped before production began due to too many characters being in the film.
He was later thanked in the credits along with Lukas, Viggo Mortensen , Sheen, Rourke, Pullman and Jason Patric. James Caviezel , who was cast as Private Witt, credits Malick's casting of him as the turning point in his career.
Cinematographer John Toll began talking to Malick in August several times over the phone about the film.
Malick and Toll began location scouting in February and started principal photography in June of that year. Pre-production went slowly.
Weeks before filming began, Malick told Geisler and Roberdeau not to show up in Australia where the film was being made, ostensibly because George Stevens Jr.
He did not tell them, however, that in he had a clause inserted in his contract barring the producers from the set. Malick and Toll shot for days in Australia using Panavision cameras and lenses, 24 days in the Solomon Islands and three days in the United States.
They scouted the historic battlefields on Guadalcanal and shot footage, but health concerns over malaria limited filming to daylight hours only.
Logistics were also difficult to shoot the entire film there:  As director of photography John Toll put it, "It's still a bit difficult to get on and off the island, and we had some scenes that involved or extras.
We would have had to bring everybody to Guadalcanal, and financially it just didn't make sense". A base camp was set up and roads carved out of the mountain.
Transporting actors and crew members up the hill took two hours. Using distraction techniques, it allows the viewer to see humanity in chaos from a distance.
John B Super Reviewer. Sep 16, No, what really harms it in the long run is the fact that we never quite develop a relationship with any of the characters.
Instead, we just hover from one to another without ever really knowing anything about them. John Toll's cinematography is spellbinding and unforgettable and Terrence Malick directs some very daring battle sequences, but it's the film's lack of depth that ends up hurting it.
That's not saying that "The Thin Red Line" is boring. Quite the contrary, actually. It's tense, invigorating stuff that had me pretty involved.
But in the end, it just isn't as memorable as it should be. Stephen E Super Reviewer. All of the grass level filming, where you can't really see the enemy This is the zen of war - the film really puts you right there, letting you see all the casualties and conflicts and letting you decide which path you would take if you were "enlisted".
Fine performances abound, and I found Nick Nolte's Colonel Tall to be an awesome portrayal. My only real complaints about this film have to do with pacing and length.
After the hill is taken and Charly Co returns to base camp, the film loses all momentum dealing with the aftermath of the campaign, which makes the then repositioning of the company up river under new and incompetent command, seem a superflous tag - a feeling compounded by the sacrifice made by the film's narrator and "soul".
Better if the film would have left out this portion of the film entirely and cut to the company leaving Guadacanal on the LCV.
Yet, in spite of these obvious missteps, the film is compelling, and its ruminations on the origin of evil and mankind's loss of harmony make this film a must see.
Mar 11, Philosophical auteur Terrence Malick might not be the kind of filmmaker you'd expect to tackle a war movie, but once you've seen The Thin Red Line, you won't be able to imagine it in anyone else's hands.
The wandering narrative, stunning photography, and outstanding cast make this an unforgettable cinematic journey. A one-of-a-kind genre film from a one-of-a-kind artist.
