Terrence Malick's exquisite first film, in a new digital restoration. Badlands announced the arrival of a major talent: Terrence Malick. His impressionistic take on the notorious Charles Starkweather killing spree of the late 1950s uses a serialkiller narrative as a springboard for an oblique teenage romance, lovingly and idiosyncratically enacted by Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek. The film introduced many of the elements that would earn Malick his passionate following: the enigmatic approach to narrative and character, the unusual use of voiceover, the juxtaposition... of human violence with natural beauty, the poetic investigation of American dreams and nightmares. This debut has spawned countless imitations, but none have equalled its strange sublimity. Bous Features: New, restored 4K digital transfer, approved by director Terrence Malick, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack Making Badlands, a new documentary featuring actors Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek and art director Jack Fisk New interviews with associate editor Billy Weber and executive producer Edward Pressman Charles Starkweather, a 1993 episode of the television programme American Justice, about the reallife story on which the film was loosely based Trailer PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by filmmaker Michael Almereyda [show more]
