Thanks for the primer on how to properly enjoy "cinema" but I am very open-minded when viewing and there hasn't been a movie made that I was unable to comprehend.

While the TRL may have had a great cast, the casting for the movie was awful. What I said in my previous post was that the TRL was a great sleep inducer. For 98% of the population it will outperform Ambien. It's a movie only a film student could love and even one of those, speaking honestly, would admit to its shortcomings.
Are you serious ? The casting was great...Sean Penn as Sgt. Welsh and James Caviezel as Pvt. Witt, were amazing and the rest of the cast was great.

Well that is your view....sometimes one thinks he understands everything but in reality they dont.

I loved the movie, if everyone in the world thinks otherwise, i dont care The Thin Red Line is in my top 5 movies of all times

EDIT: The movie was nominated for 7 oscars...
