One of the most stunning debuts by any director, Malick's own script, based loosely on the Starkweather-Fugatte killing spree of the fifties, unussually never passes judgement on the two young killers.Sheen is a James Dean lookalike and garbage collector Kit who goes on the run with his girlfriend(Spacek) after he kills her father for disapproving of their relationship.The pair leave a trail of seemingly random yet brutal killings in their wake.The lack of sensationalism is aided by Malick,cinematographer Tak Fujimoto's golden hues of colour and Spacek's flat monotone narration.Malick gives himself a cameo as the visitor of the mansion owner taken hostage by Sheen and Spacek.
Director:Terrence Malick Cast:Martin Sheen,Sissy Spacek.
