In his remarkable debut film as a director, Terrence Malick transforms the true story of spree killers Charles Starkweather and Caril Ann Fugate into a dreamy and menacing true-crime slow burn with his measured hand of poetic and philosophical filmmaking. Sissy Spacek and Martin Sheen star as the pair of murderous lovers on the run in the desolate and breathtaking vistas of the South Dakota badlands. Visually stunning, emotionally arresting, and sometimes wickedly funny, this is one of the greats.
