Terrence Malick

Famously shy and with just a handful of movies to his credit, Terrence Malick remains one of America's most admired directors. Born Nov. 30, 1943, in Waco, Texas, Malick attended Harvard University and took his first film class while teaching philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

In 1973, Malick made his feature-film debut with Badlands, loosely based on the 1958 killing spree of Charles Starkweather and Caril-Ann Fugate. Incorporating the naturalistic cinematography, elliptical storytelling and off-camera narration that would become Malick's hallmarks, the movie was deemed a masterpiece.

Malick followed up with Days of Heaven, an elegiac tale of corruption in America's heartland that won an Oscar for cinematography and a Best Director prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Two decades later, Malick netted two Oscar nods for his World War II drama The Thin Red Line (1998).
