Film Series: Badlands

1973. USA. Dir: Terrence Malick. With Martin Sheen, Sissy Spacek. 95 min.

 

A small town girl is swept up in the whirlwind of a troubled young drifter, joining him on a killing spree across the striking landscapes and radiant horizons of the vast Midwest. Malick’s impressive debut becomes a fairytale of mid-century Americana, its chilling brutality rendered poetic in the trademark lyricism that would come to define the director’s work.
