Terrence Malick

Dazza Reviews KoC

 
Ah, the beauty of living in Berlin – seeing interesting films early! I’ve just come back from a Knight of Cups screening and tapped up some thoughts. I think this would be considered spoiler free for the most part.

You break up with a girlfriend. You lose a parent. You fall in love. You learn you’re having a child. These “big” moments are followed by moments of reflection. You’re going about your life but your mind is elsewhere, back in the moment. Most films don’t like to delve too deeply into this aftermath. It doesn’t make for great cinema.

KoC is almost 2 hours of those non-moments strung together. Only for the briefest moments do we see the real moments of life occurring and when we do, within seconds they are gone and we are with a reflective Bale ruminating in standard Malick fashion about life, love and everything in between.

KOC’s Terrence Malick Tributed

 
Knight of Cups opened up this year to some interesting reviews. The Natalie Portman film (of which she only appears briefly, ala common Terrence Malick treatment) may end up being like most Malick films that get defended or attacked by the masses for years to come. However, it’s no apparent contest that director Terrence Malick has been a visionary for decades. It’s why he is being given a tribute at the Deauville Film Festival. To quote their reasons for the award:

“We thought it was the right time to honor a cineaste who places humanism at the heart of his artistic concerns,”

“We can say that his art is both harmonious and sacred. The experience he offers through his films carry us to that delicious point of going beyond the ‘self’ to the benefit of being, thus making his filmmaking unique, necessary and primordial. He turns our meanderings into the pathways of life.”
