Badlands. Terrence Malick. Malick made a debut that many people would envy. This movie had an impact from day one and its still good. The lead actor and actress portray the roles with perfection and Malick shows the story perfectly. Spacek and Sheen are a perfect couple and convincing. This movie was ahead of its time and mostly its subject matter. It would later influence many tough movies about gritty violence and sociopaths. Kit and Holly were many times imitated but never outperformed. The movie has become more and more a timeless masterpiece and will remain a favorite. (1973)
