Thoughts on Malick and how the "Voyage of Time" trailer landed with a bang!




I did suffer through Terrence Malick's "Knight of Cups", after one hour I really wanted mercy, and my final statement on that film is that it is an utter failure on all fronts except the cinematography by Lubeszki. It's a trifle that goes nowhere and yet panders to its audience in such unexpected ways. The self-congratulatory nature of Malick's hand here is disturbingly bad and after "To The Wonder", which was another unwatchable blunder, I think most of us are starting to get worried about Malick. Has he lost his touch? Well considering "Voyage of Time" has been pretty much in the books since 2011, or so, then there's a good chance it could still be very good. He only lost his way starting in 2012 + this looks more like a doc than a fiction film. 

Two versions will be released, one a 40 minute IMAX extravaganza narrated by Cate Blanchett, the other a feature length film shot on 35mm an narrated by Brad Pitt. 

He also has "Weightless" possibly coming out this fall, Wikipedia describes: Weightless is an upcoming American drama film written and directed by Terrence Malick, starring an ensemble cast including Ryan Gosling,Christian BaleNatalie PortmanRooney MaraCate BlanchettVal KilmerClifton Collins Jr.Benicio del Toro, and Michael Fassbender. The film will be released on October 21, 2016 by Broad Green Pictures. Two intersecting love triangles. Obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas.
