* AllStarCast: It's a testament to Malick's talent as a filmmaker that he is able to attract many top names to his films - the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Thin_Red_Line_(1998_film)#Casting list of actors]] interested in appearing in ''TheThinRedLine'' reads like a Who's Who of It Hollywood Players. The films themselves include stars such as Creator/RichardGere, Creator/JohnTravolta, Creator/AdrienBrody and more recently Creator/ColinFarrell, Creator/ChristianBale, Creator/BradPitt and Creator/SeanPenn (who, during the casting for TheThinRedLine, straight up told Malick "Give me a dollar and tell me where to show up")

He made his debut in 1973 with ''Film/{{Badlands}}'', about teenagers on a cross-country killing spree. He followed that up in 1978 with ''DaysOfHeaven'', an evocative, dream-like portrait of a wheat farm in the early 20th century America.

* DevelopmentHell: He takes a very, very long time to work on his projects (most famously taking a twenty-year break between DaysOfHeaven and TheThinRedLine), although lately he has been picking up the pace

* SceneryPorn: ''DaysOfHeaven'', ''TheThinRedLine'', and ''TheNewWorld'' were all nominated for Cinematography Oscars for a reason. ''TheTreeOfLife'' took this UpToEleven, earning wild praise even from people who otherwise [[Creator/BradJones vehemently hated]] the film.

** DaysOfHeaven: Malick and his cinematographer Nestor Almendros fought with the crew over how to shoot and light the film (the crew favoring more traditional Hollywood methods of lighting while Malick and Almendros wanted to solely use natural lighting from the sun, meaning they could only shoot for a few minutes every day when the lighting conditions were right) The harvesting machines kept breaking down, further slowing production. Not helping matters was Malick's very loose shooting schedule, which tended to change based on the weather and his mood (Helicopters were hired one day for a certain special effects shot, only for him to change his mind and shoot a different scene, resulting in the helicopters being put on hold at great expense)
** TheThinRedLine: After a twenty-year hiatus, Malick finally made the film, after months of pre-production. The production itself was extremely difficult, due to the logistics of transporting cast and crew around the jungle landscape, and once production wrapped he spent another two years editing the film.

He made his debut in 1973 with ''{{Film/Badlands}}'', about teenagers on a cross-country killing spree. He followed that up in 1978 with ''DaysOfHeaven'', an evocative, dream-like portrait of a wheat farm in the early 20th century America.

He then took a twenty-year break from the film industry, spending a great deal of time in Paris and traveling. During that time he was rumored to have projects in the works, but nothing materialized until the late 1990's when he went into production on ''TheThinRedLine'', an adaptation of James Jones's novel about the battle of Guadalcanal. Critics and audiences didn't know quite what to make of it when it was released (it didn't help that it was released the same time as the more mainstream ''SavingPrivateRyan''), but it was nominated for seven Academy Awards, including two for Malick, as Best Director and for his screenplay.

For awhile after ''TheThinRedLine'', it looked as if Malick might be going back into hibernation, but he returned seven years later with ''TheNewWorld'', a portrait of John Smith and Pocahontas. ''TheNewWorld'', like TheThinRedLine, baffled audiences and critics when it was initially released, but was since acclaimed by critics as one of the best films of the 2000's.

Six years after ''TheNewWorld'', Malick released his fifth film, ''TheTreeOfLife'', a film about three boys growing up in 1950's Texas, which featured a much-discussed sequence involving the creation of the universe. It was met with critical acclaim on its release, and won the Palme D'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

A year after ''The Tree of Life'', Malick released ''Film/ToTheWonder'', a film about a couple who visit Oklahoma. The film was met with [[LoveItOrHateIt cheers and boos]] at the Venice Film Festival, although later reviews have been more positive.
