Badlands (1973)



Terrence Malick’s debut explores isolation, realism, self-image, and violence with the filmmaker’s lyrical elegance, setting the footing for an opus that frustrates, engrosses and challenges with each new entry. 1973’s Badlands may well be the most forthright of his motion pictures, but it is no less vague or inventive. Now available as part of the Criterion Collection, this film marks the entrance of Malick with a statement of boldness and confidence.
