When it comes to both longevity and infrequency of output, few directors can match Terrence Malick. The American filmmaker has been directing films since 1969 and has only just broken into double digits, with two films still in the final stages of production. That being said, Malick may be getting faster with age. With the news that Malick has a new film in the works, this will mean that Malick has finished more movies in the last five years than he did in his first 40.

There’s no doubt about it – Trey Edward Shults’ feature film debut ‘Krisha’ is intense as hell. It’s a family drama about addiction and alcoholism that’s far from easy to digest, yet one with little resemblance to films about similar topics. From the aggressive, yet exhilarating ‘Trainspotting’ to the utterly traumatizing ‘Requiem for a Dream,’ many films about addicts rely on graphic depictions of substance abuse to portray how low one can fall. As important as such stories can be, sometimes smaller personal traumas resonate the loudest.

‘Knight of Cups’ Review: Terrence Malick at His Most Experimental and Abstract

In a deck of tarot cards, the Knight of Cups can signal two sides in need of balance. The armored knight atop a white horse can be a sensitive man, though one controlled by his temperamental emotions. He can be imaginative, though a dreamer distracted by fantasy, a romantic, but selfish with desires for stimulation. When the card appears in the reverse in a reading, it can signify a life struggling in transition, and a descent toward recklessness or disappointment. So is the journey of Christian Bale’s Rick, a disenchanted Hollywood screenwriter in Terrence Malick‘s ‘Knight of Cups,’ a knight trotting through a haze who seeks realization after he’s grown weary by the artifice that surrounds him.

'To the Wonder' Review

It should be impossible for a movie to be both enthralling and boring, but somehow 'To the Wonder' pulls it off. It contains sights -- of picturesque Oklahoma sunsets and impossibly serene European beaches -- so beautiful they awaken you to the glory of the world around us. And it also contains passages -- of Ben Affleck and Olga Kurylenko running and twirling through fields, and then rolling around in bed, and then fighting and screaming, and then running and twirling in that field again -- so repetitive and tiresome that they nearly lull you to sleep.

Terrence Malick's latest film 'To The Wonder' may have gotten a boost from this year's Oscars, as the film stars Ben Affleck, who just won best picture for 'Argo.' Will that get more people in the theaters this spring when the film opens? It seems unlikely, but we can't wait, regardless. Now there's a new trailer for the film.
