Abstract

Terrance Malick is is one of the most authorial directors, and moreover, his films chronically undergo dramatic changes in style and theme. This essay is based on the films he made during the 40 years after his debut as a Virgo, the period when his style changed the most. And after that, as he shot more frequently, the films tended to be similar. In these forty years, the intervals between his films are so different thus they are worth studying. This essay majorly analyzes the two aspects of Malick’s 5 films: from the script aspect, and from style aspect. The essay tries to interpret the philosophical value of Terrance Malick’s work, which is strongly affected by philosopher: Martin Heidegger. This paper traces back to the techniques and styles used in the film, and links these factors with Heidegger’s philosophical thoughts, so as to analyze the purpose of Malick’s use of these techniques and design. At last, the essay comes out with the conclusion that Malick’s changing style is resulted from his pursue of poetic in the art, which is one of Heidegger’s important prompt in field of art.
