Beach Red Review


If you've ever been curious where Terrence Malick stole his flashback-infused war film The Thin Red Line from, check out Beach Red, a clear influence for the picture in more ways than one. What starts off like any other war film (storming the beaches at Normandy, an examplary series of special effects for 1967) rapidly turns on its ear, as the various soldiers are developed via flashbacks to their lives at home: Families, girlfriends... director Cornel Wilde shows us that soldiers are people too, and that war is more than just a few bullets traded on the battlefield. Remarkably soulful for a war movie from 40 years ago, Beach Red is underseen but highly worth watching.
