Tidbits

 
Although the week is being splendid in terms of photographs and artwork, It remains very weak about Natalie news. While we await developments concerning her next projects, go with a small portion of tidbits.

SXSW film festival is taking place in Austin this week, and yesterday a documentary titled “Mr. Gaga” was premiered. Set in the world of dance, the documentary tells the story the titular director of the Batsheva Dance Company, and Natalie appears briefly in it. The Playlist has more details about it.

People have a few words of Natalie about how challenging it was to work alongside Christian Bale in Knight of Cups:

“Christian would do surprising things all the time. It’s fun to watch – and sometimes scary, like when he’s like diving off a dock into the ocean when you don’t expect it in the middle of a scene. But he also keeps everything feeling very alive and spontaneous. It was really a fun, unusual experience.”

“It’s got that complication to it,” Portman says of what drew her to the role. “Because in one sense [their relationship] has the most authentic love, but also it’s the most forbidden. So there’s this gentleness and a generosity between them, but it’s the wrong relationship to be having.”

Looks like it’s going to be a big week for Knight of Cups news, leading up to the (tiny) opening on Friday. It has been a loooong wait to see the film and having seen it last year, it is probably not going to be worth the wait unless you are one of the few in-tune with the very personal and unique presentation that Malick is working with.

– Let’s start with a new video interview from One Big Soul.

– Next up is a new teaser trailer that is really great. The music and the visuals go together beautifully.

– Then we have a couple positive reviews.

The Village Voice calls it sumptuous.

You don’t reason your way through a film like this; you let it wash over you, pull you this way and that.

Or you reject it. Many will run screaming from Knight of Cups, even as some of us are enraptured. At times, Malick almost seems to welcome this polarized response.
