This precode love-triangle garnered 4 Academy Award Nominations and lots of press for Marlene Dietrich’s iconic turn in tailcoats.

Terrence Malick’s debut features an unbearably young Sissy Spacek and a hard-edged Martin Sheen in a fugitive love story where no happy ending is possible. Full of ’70s outsider ethos and gorgeous landscapes, the plot of Badlands oscillates between chaotic violence and idyllic utopia, its main characters seemingly trapped in the forward propulsion of a hasty wild bid to be together. This work contains some graphic violence.
