DVD Review – Knight of Cups (2016)

22 August 2016 12:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Knight of Cups, 2016.

Directed by Terrence Malick.

Starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto and Brian Dennehy.

Synopsis:

Ray, a Hollywood screenwriter suffering from a metaphysical crisis in his existence, journeys through his life and considers the road he’s spent his life travelling on…

Right at the outset of Knight of Cups, a caption suggests, from the director, that for an optimum impression, you should listen to the film loud. Loud, that’s the word used. Sound and noise are two of the most key twin bedfellows to Terrence Malick’s film, and indeed the word film can be used loosely to describe this. It’s more like a visual art installation, a free form observation on a man, on life, on the absence and simultaneous fullness of life. If that sounds as pretentious as it reads, then you’re halfway to discovering »

Knight of Cups; The Pearl Button; Arabian Nights; The Jungle Book; Jane Got a Gun; Miles Ahead; The Get Down – review

21 August 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Christian Bale plays a lost soul in Terrence Malick’s movie, while a documentary about the human rights abuses in Pinochet’s Chile is moving and assured

A new Terrence Malick film premieres at the forthcoming Venice film festival with less advance fanfare than in the days when he averaged one film an aeon. A latterday bout of relative productivity has made the famously hermetic auteur’s films seem less special, but that’s a generous excuse to make for the dispiriting vacuity of Knight of Cups (Studiocanal, 15), the most actively esoteric but least soulful of his signature tone poems.

Starring Christian Bale as a disaffected comic screenwriter – perhaps a rare glimmer of self-irony on Malick’s part – wandering La and Vegas in search of solace/inspiration/sex, the film applies a po-faced, tarot-reading structure to his metaphysical trials and personal entanglements.

Tiff Premiere ‘Green White Green’ Shows Off Wildness of Youth In Hilarious Insult Battle – Watch

16 August 2016 7:31 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The capriciousness of youth is on full display in an exclusive look at recently announced Toronto International Film Festival premiere “Green White Green.” Abba Makama’s daring, wild and seemingly very fun film follows three young boys — all from Nigeria’s various ethnic groups — who go “on an adventure to make a short film inspired by the history of Nigeria. They embark on a roller coaster ride that will eventually lead them towards their individual paths to self-discovery.”

Part of that roller coaster ride? At least one very funny “yaba off,” an insult battle of the classic style. IndieWire is very pleased to present an exclusive first look at the film, yabas on full display.

'Man of Steel' Sequel on Its Way...Eventually

9 August 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Most everyone who saw Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had to admit that Ben Affleck's Batman stole the movie from Henry Cavill's Superman. In part, that was by design, since Batman's older, angrier new persona needed to be established to pave the way for the creation of the Justice League. Also, the movie needed to distinguish Affleck's Batman from the very fine portrayal of the character embodied by Christian Bale in Christopher Nolan's popular trilogy. Where did that leave Superman, though? After the destructive events depicted in Man of Steel, as well as Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Superman was left humbled and contrite. He ended up teaming with Batman and Wonder Woman to defeat a powerful common foe, though the conclusion of the movie left his...
