With 2005's "The New World", one of cinema's most enigmatic filmmakers returned to the screen with only his fourth feature film in a career of over thirty years. Terrence Malick's work has always managed to divide opinion, but his poetic, transcendent filmic language has unquestionably redefined modern cinema, and with a new feature scheduled for 2008, it seems contemporary cinema is finally catching up with his vision. To chart the continuing growth of Terrence Malick's oeuvre, the second edition of "The Cinema of Terrence Malick: Poetic Visions of America" continues its explorations of identity, place and existence in his films. Featuring two new original essays on the latest landmark in his career and extensive analysis of "The Thin Red Line", Malick's haunting screen treatment of World War Two, this is the essential study of one of American cinemas most visionary poets.
