 The director was Terence Malik who later went on to direct DAYS OF HEAVEN
and will, hopefully, soon direct a new film version of James Jones's THE THIN
RED LINE, unless screwed up by Hollywood.
  On Spacek's character, I don't really think she qualifies under the
mental disability label. She is slow, in a world of her own (as is the
Sheen character) but is more caught within an illusion than anything else.
Her voiuce-over narration gives her perspective, one which Malik wishes
the audience to contrast with events depicted on the screen.
