Review: Terrence Malick's "The New World" (2005) Starring Colin Farrell And Christian Bale; Criterion Blu-ray Special Edition

2 August 2016 3:30 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

“Beauty, Love, Mother... And America”

By Raymond Benson

Filmmaker Terrence Malick has perhaps out-mystique’d the great Stanley Kubrick in terms of his public perception. Famously reclusive, Malick never allows photographs of himself to be used, and he never appears in “making of” documentaries about his films. A Rhodes Scholar and a Harvard graduate, he is obviously a brilliant man. Once he got into the film business, he worked as a script doctor until he made his first feature, Badlands (1973). It was critically acclaimed and established Malick as a hot addition to the “New Hollywood” movement. Next came Days of Heaven in 1978, also critically lauded.

And then... he disappeared. For twenty years.

In 1998, he appeared on the scene again, and Hollywood was more than ready to open checkbooks and fund his third feature film, The Thin Red Line.

It takes a lot of mystique for that scenario to happen.

29 June 2016 5:56 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Previous releases have been “eh” at best, and it’s a title that just Begs for the Scream Factory treatment…and it looks like that’s about to happening. In celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the horror classic, the Sf gang are pulling out the stops with a brand new October 11th Bluray release, complete with a new transfer, new supplemental material and quite the artwork (all versions…keep reading…).

The Enigmatic Terrence Malick

8 May 2016 6:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the UK release of Knight of Cups this weekend, Neil Calloway looks at a unique directing talent…

Terrence Malick has directed seven films since his debut with Badlands in 1973. That might not seem like many, but when you factor in the fact that between the release of Days of Heaven in 1978 and The Thin Red Line in 1998 he didn’t make a single film, he’s got quite an impressive work rate.

Despite so few films being made, his influence on other film-makers is huge. When Malick’s The Tree of Life was released, Christopher Nolan spoke of his influence on his own films. While that’s hard to see, it’s undoubtedly true that Malick’s films has influenced many writers and directors. True Romance is Tarantino’s homage to Badlands, David Gordon Green’s work shows his influence. Paul Thomas Anderson’s There Will Be Blood contains very Malickian scenes, »

Terrence Malick's 'The New World' & New Titles By Alain Resnais, Arthur Hiller & More Coming To Criterion In July

18 April 2016 5:59 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Another month, another list of great titles from The Criterion Collection coming in July. Though you could call July a rather special month as it features the inclusion of a new Terrence Malick film to the collection: the longer version of 2005's seventeenth-century America tone poem "The New World." Running 172 minutes (nearly 3 hours), this version was never shown theatrically and as special as the running time sounds, it's the same one that's been available on DVD since 2008. Moreover, it will be get getting a new restoration, tons of goodies and great packaging. The set will contain the 150-minute limited release and 135-minute wide release cuts of the movie as well. The disc also includes new interviews with actors Colin Farrel and Q’orianka Kilcher, a new making-of featuring producer Sarah Green, production designer Jack Fisk, and costume designer Jacqueline West, a making-of editing doc featuring three of the film's editors, »

NYC Weekend Watch: Frederick Wiseman, Jack Fisk, ‘Weekend’ & More

24 March 2016 6:22 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.


Frederick Wiseman‘s High School begins a week-long run.

“Welcome to Metrograph: A to Z” offers multiple titles this weekend, including Assayas‘ Boarding Gate, The Beguiled, and Nicolas Roeg‘s Bad Timing.

A 35mm print of Carol screens on Saturday night.

Cary Grant and Irene Dunne star in My Favorite Wife, playing this Sunday.

Watch ‘Rosy-Fingered Dawn,’ a 90-Minute Documentary on Terrence Malick

22 March 2016 8:20 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

As the debate rages on if Terrence Malick‘s recent work matches up to his earlier output (we fall firmly on the side that it’ll be greater appreciated as time goes on), today we have a documentary that explores his process — although, as one might expect, there’s no sight of him across the 90 minutes. Rosy-Fingered Dawn: A Film on Terrence Malick, fittingly named after a description of the goddess of dawn, Aurora, premiered back in 2002 at the Venice Film Festival, but has been hard to find since then.

Hailing from Italy and directed by Luciano BarcaroliCarlo HintermannGerardo Panichi, and Daniele Villa, it focuses on the making of the three films that had been made then: Badlands, Days of Heaven, and The Thin Red Line. Featuring interviews with Jack Fisk, Sean Penn, Martin Sheen, Sam Shepart, Sissy SpacekBilly Weber, Haskell Wexler, Elias KoteasJim Caviezel, Ennio Morricone, »

“Knight of Cups” gives audiences another Terrence Malick film to ponder

3 March 2016 10:17 AM, PST | | See recent news »

There are very few filmmakers with a more singular style out there than the one and only Terrence Malick. This week, he offers up another unique cinematic experience with Knight of Cups, sure to be a divisive little movie. This is part of his new, slightly grittier fare, and it’s certainly going to get a response out of you. I’ve had a hit or miss relationship with Malick flicks previously, though I can say without question that this is unlike anything he has ever done before, at least in terms of what he’s trying to accomplish. I’ll share my personal thoughts below, but Malick fans will have reason to anticipate this release, that’s for sure. The film follows a successful writer named Rick (Christian Bale) as he indulges in Hollywood excess and wanders around, pontificating about his life to himself, as well as the audience, »

They Knew Him Well: Malick’s Sublime Existential Search for the Pearl

To many, Terrence Malick, perhaps the most revered of modern American auteurs, has ascended to his own idiosyncratic, esoteric doss, entering his most prolific decade in his forty years of filmmaking with confounding illustrations of pronounced existential ennui. Following 2011’s Palme d’Or winning The Tree of Life, he unleashed the belabored To the Wonder, cementing a pretentious predilection for wandering, rambling lost souls. His latest, Knight of Cups is certainly as impressionistic as these last two features, and hinges once again on a restless nomad, this time a faded Hollywood screenwriter hovering betwixt the sacred labors of his profession and the profane temptations of his surroundings. Inundated with notable celebrities, it’s too abstruse for a legion of starfuckers to fathom, much less righteously embrace its rather obvious critique of how completely commodifying an art form eventually »

‘Knight of Cups’ Producers Discuss Their First Terrence Malick Experience, His Creative Process, and More

2 March 2016 10:52 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Being that Terrence Malick isn’t necessarily available for the career-spanning interview — or even a soundbite — the next best thing for learning more about his creative process comes from those that work closest with him in development: the producers. Before his Christian Bale-led drama Knight of Cups enters a limited release this Friday, I had the chance to speak with Sarah GreenNicolas Gonda, and Ken Kao

While Green has worked with Malick since 2005’s The New World and Gonda came onboard with The Tree of LifeKnight of Cups marks the first collaboration with Kao, who has also executive-produced this year’s The Nice Guys and Silence. It was a delight to discuss their first experiences seeing a film from Malick, his creative process, what’s in store for the upcoming, Austin-set Weightless, witnessing the collaboration between Malick, Emmanuel Lubezki, and Jack Fisk, and more.

Jack Fisk Discusses the Evolution of Terrence Malick, the Film That Changed His Life, and Letting Go of His Work

1 March 2016 9:55 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Few talents in cinema have built up a finer bevy of collaborators than production designer Jack Fisk. Over the last four decades, he’s crafted detailed worlds for Terrence Malick, Brian De Palma, Paul Thomas Anderson, David Lynch, and Stanley Donen, to name but a handful. Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s The Revenant earned him his second Oscar nomination and marked his sixth collaboration with Emmanuel Lubezki — but as often happens with the workflow of Malick, we’re just now getting their the fourth collaboration, Knight of Cups, which arrives in theaters this Friday.

I had the chance to speak with Fisk about his work on the feature, how Terrence Malick has evolved over the years, a seminal experience in getting him into filmmaking, what “bad” production design means, the aspect of letting go of his work, working with Lubezki, the differences between Malick and Iñárritu, and much more.

Final Predictions for the 2016 Oscars

27 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

For once, we have an Oscar race with some actual suspense.

Last year, "Boyhood" and "Birdman" went neck-and-neck for most of awards season, but by the home stretch, the results were easy to predict if you were paying attention. This year, with three strong contenders for Best Picture, guessing who'll go home with trophies on Sunday is that much harder.

Nonetheless, most of the acting categories, as well as a few others, have been pretty much locked down for months. Here, then, are my picks for who'll triumph at the 88th Academy Awards, based on research, many years spent covering the Oscars, and my gut feelings.

1. Best Original Song

Could this be the year that perennial Oscar also-ran Diane Warren finally wins? After all, she's teamed with Lady Gaga, who's been on a roll lately, in creating the tune "Til It Happens To You," from "The Hunting Ground." Warren's »

Oscars 2016: Who will win/should win according to Screen...

Will The Revenant sweep the boards? Screen’s staff run down their predictions for the 2016 Oscars…Best Picture

Finn Halligan, reviews editor and chief film critic

Will win: The Revenant.

Should win: The Revenant, probably, though The Big Short would also be a good winner. It felt somehow more fresh and relevant and sharp than Alejandro G. Inarritu’s man-vs-nature epic struggle. But The Revenant has a critical and business force behind it – domestic box office at $165m as opposed to The Big Short’s $67m, and the business does tend to vote for the business.

Jeremy Kay, Us editor

Will win: Spotlight. The race is too tight for The Revenant to scoop up everything, so this could be the upset. Spotlight has sputtered towards the finish line, but it has the right combination of smarts and righteousness so beloved by the Academy.

Should win: Spotlight.

Matt Mueller, editor

Will win: Post-BAFTAs, The Revenant has the »

5 Days til Oscar. "5" being the Sacrosanct Number.

23 February 2016 10:32 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Oscar Voting Closes Today! Ceremony This Sunday.

The Film Experience had quite a scare earlier this season when it was suggested that the Academy might change the number of nominees per category (ostensibly to promote diversity though it would send a terrible message of "now, you might be worthy with more slots. might not" We still don't know if they'll spring this ghastly proposition on us and whether it will ruin every chart and stat for the future. The varying number of nominees in Best Picture already makes for messy comparisons from year to year which used to be half the fun.

The sacrosanct number is 5 and it should not ever change. Any deviation from 5 feels blasphemous as in those years when Original Song or Short Films kept changing the number or the continued satanic tradition of denying the Makeup and Hairstylist branch two of their deserved nominations each year »
