His first feature, Badlands (1973), was widely recognised as an extraordinary debut and it marked the beginning of his prosperous filmmaking career. After Days of Heaven (1987), Malick took an intermission of two decades before returning with The Thin Red Line (1998), which was awarded the Golden Bear at Berlinale and nominated for seven Academy Awards.
