The suddenly prolific Terrence Malick isn’t just busy making his own movies, but lending his producing powers to other projects that have no shame in borrowing his aesthetic. “The Better Angels,” directed by “To The Wonder,” “Knight Of Cups,” and “Weightless” editor A.J. Edwards, certainly bore the trademark look and feel of Malick feature, and […]

"Sometimes I think about how different things would be if that wave hadn't just struck in the middle of the night..." Wow. The first trailer has debuted for a film called The Vessel, executive produced by Terrence Malick, from filmmaker Julio Quintana. Starring Martin Sheen, the film is about a Catholic priest in a Latin American town destroyed by a tsunami ten years ago. This trailer is filled with some stunning imagery reminiscent of Malick's work and a tiny bit of the score by Hanan Townshend, the talented composer from Malick's Knight of Cups and To the Wonder. Where did this film come from?! It looks amazing! Also starring Lucas Quintana, Jacqueline Duprey, and Aris Mejias. Don't hesitate, just dive right into this. Here's the first official trailer for Julio Quintana's The Vessel, found on YouTube (via Tfs): Ten years after a tsunami destroyed a small-town elementary school with all the children inside, »

While Terrence Malick of late has, for some, turned into a twirling-magic-hour parody of himself with “To The Wonder” and “Knight Of Cups,” it’s easy to forget he can still conjure truly inspiring movie magic unlike any other. And for those who have lost faith, they might want to get ready for it to be […]

Terrence Malick’s latest film “Knight of Cups,” an experimental drama about a Hollywood screenwriter’s (Christian Bale) existential crisis through a world of delirious excess, had its theatrical release this past March. The film continues Malick’s recent creative resurgence; his last two features, “The Tree of Life” and “To The Wonder,” were released this decade after a pattern of long periods of silence between films. Now, his next film will hit theaters this fall, only it will be released in IMAX instead.

Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups” follows a Hollywood screenwriter Rick (Christian Bale) in the midst of an existential crisis as he tries to find solace in garish industry excess and frequent dalliances with women. Divided into eight chapters named after Tarot cards following Rick’s relationship with another person in his life, Malick abstracts internal pain and confusion into a momentous visual experience that’s both intimate and alienating.
Terrence Malick is one of the most acclaimed American directors working today. He made his directorial debut with “Badlands,” starring Martin Sheen and Sissy Spacek as young fugitives from the law. After that, he released the film “Days of Heaven,” starring Richard Gere »

In mess and madness, there is often beauty and genius. These are the words editor Conor Bateman uses to describe “Knights of Cups,” Terrence Malick’s latest film — a movie that he may not love but definitely appreciates. Perhaps more polarizing than his last film, 2013’s equally-mixed “To the Wonder,” it’s safe to say the […]

It may have first entered production all the way back in 2011, but thanks to directing duties on both To The Wonder and, more recently, the Christian Bale-led Knight of Cups, Weightless fell far down the pecking order for esteemed filmmaker Terrence Malick.
It’s finally starting to display signs of life, however, with the British Board Of Film Classification (via The Playlist) posting not only the movie’s official running time – just north of 145 minutes in length – but also the ensemble cast that will be headlining Malick’s latest creative effort.
Pulling together some of the talent that also featured in existential feature Knight of Cups, the filmmaker will reteam with Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman for the musical drama, while there’s also roles for Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Haley Bennett, Michael Fassbender, Val Kilmer, Benicio Del Toro, Clifton Collins Jr., Angela Bettis, Bérénice Marlohe, Florence Welch, »

Trying to track updates on a developing Terrence Malick movie always seems to fall somewhere between peering into a crystal ball and playing whack-a-mole. And that has been the case for “Weightless,” which first started production way back in 2011, and in the interim, has seen the filmmaker release “To The Wonder” and “Knight Of Cups,” […]

This week, Neil Calloway looks at how winning in Cannes affects a film’s box office…
Cannes remains the most important film festival in the world, and one of the most important events of any type (think of an annual event that gets the same coverage and you’re searching for a while). The latest festival ends tonight.
There are three parts to Cannes – the market, where bad movies get sold to international distributors so the producers can finance their next straight to DVD Nazi-Vampire-Kung Fu flick, there’s the promotional part, where young, pretty actresses get photographed next to old directors, and there is the competition.
The top prize at the competition, and unquestionably the top prize at any film festival anywhere, is the Palme d’Or. Does winning it help a film, though?

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, »

After releasing just four films in four decades, Terrence Malick suddenly became much more prolific starting with 2011’s Tree of Life. To the Wonder and Knight of Cups followed in quick succession, and Weightless should be coming along in the not-too-distant future. Even as he’s picked up his pace, though, he’s taken his good sweet time with Voyage of Time, a […]

Excepting a handful of his contemporaries, no director encourages widespread debate as much as Terrence Malick, a once-revered mystery man whose increasingly prolific and autobiographical oeuvre has, in some circles, begun raising concerns. Is he a misogynist? Does he not know how to represent people of color? Have the Lubezki-photographed images become static in their meaning, or lack thereof? In other words: is this guy really kind of full of shit?
Although this site generally leans in favor of the film and its maker, individual voices represented here have argued, and with good reason, more towards the affirmative when considering those questions. And in a circle we start to spin: his specter’s grown so strong that even the most hard-headed critics, no matter their opinion, will take it into account when discussing (or debating and debating and debating) the work.

Terrence Malick has been drifting away from me for a while now. Like everyone, I was entranced for decades by his Badlands and Days Of Heaven, each almost perfect in its own way. When he came back from 20 years of obscurity to make The Thin Red Line in 1998, so many name actors wanted to be associated with him that his massive cast capsized the movie, for which expectations had anyway been ratcheted far too high. But I still think of 2005’s The New World as one of the greatest movies of the new millennium, an epic period piece about the dawn of the American experience, strengthened by a resumption of the intimate, three-way character dynamics of his first two movies. »

With Terrence Malick’s latest film Knight of Cups set to open in UK cinemas next week, we’ve got a merchandise pack up for grabs, which includes To the Wonder on Blu-ray, the original motion picture soundtrack for Knight of Cups on DC, and Terrence Malick: Rehearsing the Unexpected. Read on for details of how to enter…
Rick (Christian Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.

Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” has left the world abuzz since HBO debuted the visual album for a 27-hour window Saturday night. For those who missed it, it’s available for purchase via iTunes, or streaming via Jay Z’s Tidal platform. But the television drop makes it eligible for Emmy consideration, and HBO plans to submit “Lemonade” in the variety special category, Variety has learned.
Whether Kahlil Joseph and Beyoncé herself, the credited directors of the piece, can be joined by “additional directors” Melina Matsoukas, Todd Tourso, Dikayl Rimmasch, Jonas Akerlund and Mark Romanek remains to be seen. HBO is in the midst of working out those details.
Meanwhile, “Lemonade” should be a shoo-in for consideration in the lighting design/lighting direction category, »

Knight of Cups tells the story of a Hollywood screenwriter (Christian Bale) who laments his purpose in life. Strippers, parties, money, family dysfunction, the works. Each interaction he shares comes and goes with ghostly ease, stepping up to drop their two cents of disgruntlement before receding back into the evening’s debauchery. Vice and vulgarity become a source of addiction, a cocktail that goes down smooth and cauterizes the soul. If all this sounds obtuse and pretentious, that’s because director Terrence Malick goes out of his way to make it so. As a result, Knight of Cups is a soufflé that can’t go more than a few minutes without caving in on the viewer – a side effect of its stubborn house chef.

With DC's Big Three both overperforming and underperforming (if you know what I mean) in Zach Snyder's ugly hit, and all the box office stories being old (like Zootopia, showing incredible legs in its 5th weekend) or depressing (two terrible biopics on screens with Don Cheadle's Miles Davis and Tom Hiddleston's Hank Williams). We've definitely entered the doldrums before the summer explosion of would be all-sequel giants (like Captain America 3, X-Men 6, Finding Nemo 2, Neighbors 2, Ghostbusters 3.0, etcetera), box office charts are too dull and repetitive.
Zootopia is a smash. Holding as well as Frozen did.
