The Thin Red Line  JAN 22 1999

Saw The Thin Red Line yesterday; it was very good. I can see why it doesn't have the mass appeal that Saving Private Ryan had though. It's slow, it makes you think, there are no great battle scenes, and it's hard to understand in parts. My favorite thing about it is that it gives the audience a variety of things to think about when they leave the theatre; it's not just "here's the point of the whole film, stupid."
