Berlinale 2015. Dialogues: Terrence Malick's "Knight of Cups"

10 February 2015 8:01 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

 From the Berlin International Film Festival, Adam Cook and Daniel Kasman continue our series of festival dialogues. Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups had its world premiere in the Berlinale's Competition.

Daniel Kasman: I must admit it's a bit difficult to begin speaking of this overwhelming film so immediately after seeing it, and especially in the atmosphere here in Berlin of almost immediate derision. I remember the boos that instantly followed the final shot of The Tree of Life's in Cannes and here I'd swear I felt that negative energy going into the giant Berlinale Palast, the anticipation of yet more Malick. Whatever that means. Few still describe well his method as a filmmaker, and whatever you may think of his last film, To the Wonder, it certainly revealed more about how Terrence Malick, a very unique filmmaker, thinks about cinema as a language, and how his cinema "works"—moves, »

All The Songs In Terrence Malick's 'Knight Of Cups': Lots Of Classical, Plus Tracks By Explosions In The Sky, Burial, & More

8 February 2015 10:38 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

This is how it goes with Terrence Malick — long stretches of quiet around whatever he's working on, followed by an intense period of scrutiny as it gets unveiled. And so it goes today, with "Knight Of Cups" premiering at the Berlin International Film Festival. The first poster was revealed, our review is right here, and we've gotten our hands on all the music featured in the director's latest look at the soul of man (or something). As per usual, Malick leans heavily on classical jams, with compositions by Arvo Part, Claude Debussy, Edvard Grieg, and more. For those of you want to cue up your playlists with something more contemporary, there are tunes by Thee Oh Sees, Explosions In The Sky, Burial, and a ton of music by ambient electronic artist Biosphere. Below you'll find the full list of songs, and on the next page, all the tracks your ears can handle. »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Knight of Cups’

8 February 2015 10:15 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

You go into a Terrence Malick movie expecting a gorgeous collage of sound and image, but not necessarily the sight of a neon-lit strip club, a Caesars Palace pool party, or a fashion shoot where a model is told to pose like “a dirty f—ing housewife.” In other words, there’s something at once vividly familiar and strikingly different about “Knight of Cups,” a feverish plunge into the toxic cloud of decadence swirling around a Los Angeles screenwriter gone to seed. Having made contemporary American life seem both recognizable and alien in “To the Wonder,” Malick now extends that film’s tender romantic ballet into a corrosive critique of Hollywood hedonism — a poisoned valentine to the industry by way of a Fellini-esque bacchanal. Those who have had their fill of the director’s impressionistic musings will find his seventh feature as empty as the lifestyle it puts on display; for the rest of us, »

Heading Toward an Oscar Rarity

2 February 2015 7:53 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

The stars may align in Hollywood this year in a way we’ve only seen once in the past 77 years.

Since the Oscars went to four acting categories in 1937, only once have all four of  the acting winners been 46 or older.

But that could change this year, since all of this year’s acting favorites are 46 or older, except The Theory of Everything’s Eddie Redmayne, 33.

The frontrunners — who now look locked in for Oscar wins — for three of the acting categories are supporting actress nominee Patricia Arquette, 46; supporting actor nominee J.K. Simmons, 60, and lead actress nominee Julianne Moore, 54. If all three of the aforementioned nominees win and if Birdman’s Michael Keaton, 63, beats Redmayne for lead actor, all four winners will be 46 or older.

The last time all four acting winners were older than 46 was 1982.

That year, Maureen Stapleton was the youngest acting winner »
