Badlands : Two young people on the run

AdvantagesBrilliant music, beautifully acted, very atmospheric

DisadvantagesNone for me although it's not a film for people who like lots of action or are into sentimentality

"...based on a real event, Badlands is a film about two young people on the run. A fair part of the dialogue of the film is spoken in narrative form by Cissy Spacek, as the story is presented largely from her character Holly’s perspective. Time-wise, Badlands is probably set in the late 1950s or early 1960s. When refuse-collector and James Dean lookalike Kit spots 15-year-old Holly outside of her house, he befriends her and asks her to go for a ..." Read review

Naive and violent? Mmmkay Malick

AdvantagesThoughtfully done, attention to detail

DisadvantagesDisappointing, a bit tame for me

"...the demands of the masses. Badlands seeks to take a murderous rampage and make a fairy story out of it. He is even quoted as justifying this attempt by explaining that many children's stories have violence and murder in them, such as Treasure Island. Be that as it may, Badlands is about a teenage girl (Spacek) who runs away with her rebellious twenty-something boyfriend (Sheen) after killing her family in cold blood. The story then sees them rampaging ..." Read review

Sheen & Spacek Rule

Advantagessee opinion

Disadvantagesnone

"Atmospheric. Eerie. Chilling. Scary. True. "Badlands" is based upon the real-life episode of terror that reigned in mid-fifties America. The real people were Caril Fugate, a young and impressionable teenager, and her boyfriend, an angry young man of the first order, Charles Starkweather. Together they embarked on a killing spree, that also claimed the life of Caril's father, and made themselves part of American folklore. A more recent version ..." Read review

BADLANDS (1973) [FILM ONLY REVIEW] Review with images

AdvantagesMulti layered, immense performances, stunning visuals

DisadvantagesNone

"Terrence Malick's BADLANDS was released at the New York Film Festival in 1973, alongside such honoured company as Scorsese's first great film MEAN STREETS, but it's Malick's hypnotic directing debut, complete with stark visuals and a disquieting narrative, that set new standards for character studies (like Scorsese's later TAXI DRIVER) all around the world. Kit is a troubled but careless and free young man who feels he doesn't belong in society ..." Read review

Immortal escape from growing up

Advantagesmusic, beauty pictures, poetic-climat, research about psychopathy, good story

DisadvantagesDon't see any really disadvantages

"I'm not a fan of Malick's work, but this film is absolutely fascinating. We have a 15 year old girl, young, who just soaks everything, she says with a little dull voice, the monotone voice-but that is one of the elements of the excellence of the film. The question is- if this girl, her approach is associated with a theory contained in the book: "Psychopaths Among Us" by Robert D. Hare, on not quite well-behaved children whose empathy is not very developed, ..." Read review

Product Information for "Badlands (DVD)" »

DVD Description

Former Harvard Rhodes scholar Terrence Malick's debut feature revisits the murderous Midwestern terrain of the late 1950s. Kit (Martin Sheen) is a 25-year-old trashman who fashions himself as James Dean. When he meets Holly (Sissy Spacek), a cute, innocent 15-year-old, he finds himself falling in love with her. Her father (Warren Oates), an overprotective widower, will not allow the relationship to blossom, even after Kit informs him of his decent intentions. This refusal triggers Kit into embarking on a murder spree across the Midwest. All the while, Holly is there by Kit's side, to witness the senseless crimes and ponder the future.
BADLANDS is told from the point of view of the naive Holly, whose voice-over sounds like she's reading from a serial romance. It is this innocence that makes the detached, cold killings all the more shocking. Sheen portrays Kit--a dreamer who wants nothing more than to leave his mark on history--with a grace and humor that makes him a sympathetic character even while he's killing innocent strangers. All of this can be accredited to Malick, whose understated, seemingly simplistic direction adds an even greater emotional impact to the proceedings.
