Terrence Frederick Malick (/ˈmælɪk/; born November 30, 1943) is an American film director, screenwriter, and producer. In a career spanning over four decades he has directed eight feature films. Malick made his directorial debut with the drama Badlands (1973), influenced by the crimes of convicted teenaged spree killer Charles Starkweather. His second film, Days of Heaven (1978), follows a farm laborer who becomes caught in a love triangle; both films are often ranked among the best of the 1970s. After the latter's release, Malick took a long hiatus from filmmaking. His third film, The Thin Red Line (1998), is set during World War II and received an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture. His fourth film, The New World (2005), is a romantic historical drama. The Tree of Life (2011), Malick's fifth film, is an experimental art drama that observes a 1950s Texas family through fragmented visual style and a nonlinear narrative. Although initial reviews were polarized, many critics and scholars now consider the film a masterpiece. Shortly before its U.S. release, the film won the Palme d'Or at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. To the Wonder (2012), the sixth film directed by Malick, is a romantic drama art film.

Malick has received consistent praise for his work and is regarded as one of the greatest living filmmakers. He was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director for The Thin Red Line and The Tree of Life, and the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for The Thin Red Line, as well as winning the Golden Bear at the 49th Berlin International Film Festival for The Thin Red Line, the Palme d'Or at the 64th Cannes Film Festival for The Tree of Life, and the SIGNIS Award at the 69th Venice International Film Festival for To the Wonder.

Biography

Malick is famously protective of his private life. His contracts stipulate that his likeness may not be used for promotional purposes, and he routinely declines requests for interviews.

From 1970 to 1976, Malick was married to Jill Jakes. His companion afterward in the late 1970s was director and screenwriter Michie Gleason. In 1985 in France, he married Michèle Marie Morette, whom he met in Paris in 1980; in 1996, Malick asked for a divorce, which was granted. Afterward he married Alexandra "Ecky" Wallace, the best friend of his high-school sweetheart.

As of at least 2011, Malick resides in Austin, Texas.

Badlands is set in 1959 and narrated by the impressionable 15 year-old Holly Sargis (Spacek), a teenage girl living in a dead-end South Dakota town called Fort Dupree. She has been estranged from her sign painter father ever since her mother died of pneumonia some years earlier. One day she meets the 25-year-old garbage collector Kit Carruthers (Sheen). Kit is a young, troubled, psychopathic greaser, who resembles James Dean, an actor Holly admires. Kit charms Holly, and she slowly falls in love with him. Holly's narration, describing her adventures with Kit in romantic clichés, is juxtaposed as Kit's increasingly antisocial and violent behavior is slowly revealed. Holly's father disagrees with their relationship, so he kills Holly's dog. Kit kills him in retaliation. They then fake suicide by burning down the house and take off on the run together, making their way towards the Badlands of Montana, they leave a trail of dispassionate and seemingly random murders throughout the midwest behind them. Their faked suicide didn't work, however, but despite bounty hunters and police on their tail, it does not hinder their killing spree. The two are eventually arrested; Kit is executed for his crimes, while Holly receives probation.
