For the soundtrack to director Terrence Malick's acclaimed 1998 Vietnam War film, THE THIN RED LINE, veteran composer Hans Zimmer crafted a subtle, understated score that garnered an Oscar nomination. With their string-laden, almost-ambient moments and chant-filled passages, these pieces provide a poignant counterpoint to the on-screen violence, and perfectly echo the more meditative scenes in the movie, as on the gorgeously serene "Light."
