Ter­rence Mal­ick has had one of the strangest films of any Hol­ly­wood di­rec­tor, even go­ing AWOL for 20 years be­fore re­turn­ing with 1998’s The Thin Red Line. Here’s a chance to see his fea­ture de­but, which re­mains one of the most im­pres­sive films of the 1970s and now has a cult fol­low­ing. It’s a bleak drama star­ring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek which is based in the real-life Stark­weather-Fu­gate case of the 1950s. Af­ter killing his girl­friend’s fa­ther, a would-be rebel takes her on the run with him across Mid­west­ern Amer­ica, and bumps off any­body else who dares to con­front them.

On the run: Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek star.
