New Knight of Cups trailer is about as Malick-y as you can get

11.24.2015

Every time a new Terrence Malick movie is on the horizon, the cinefiles trip all over themselves in order to tell everyone else how great Malick is as a filmmaker and blah blah blah... I'm sure you've heard it all before. Now I'm not speaking ill of Malick at all, but you have to admit... The drool becomes a bit excessive sometimes.

I imagine I'll have to wade through plenty of it as I give you the new trailer for his latest KNIGHT OF CUPS. It looks visually incredible, as all Malick pictures do, but, as far as Broad Green selling me on going to see it when it hits theaters next year, it's not really doing its job. I have no idea what the hell this is about from this brief look. Then again, maybe they're hoping Malick's name does all the talking. If so, you know the audience you're going to get already, and I'm sure they're fine with what they're getting here.

KNIGHT OF CUPS gives you the latest taste of Malick on March 4, 2016.

I know Malick has his fans but I'm not one of them. That looked more like a commercial for a new iPhone than a movie. However, I do enjoy the actors in this so it might be worth a watch pending reviews. Just really not my cup of tea to pay to see something like this.

Yeah, this Donnelly dude needs to be reigned in a little. Generally, I appreciate the JoBlo style of writers spouting their two cents, but all he does is crack wise (unwise is more like it) and rants more than doing actual reporting.

As for the trailer: gorgeous as ever, but it's not Marvel or DC, so of course the JoBlo habitués are confused and negative. I for one look forward to a slightly more narrative reliant Malick flick.

I feel like Brett Easton Ellis wrote this, right?

Obviously, Brett Easton did not write this, but does it not look like a Brett Easton Ellis movie shot by Malick?

I actually think if I sat and watched this movie I'd find stuff to like in it. But that's how I am with a lot of art movies. I was maybe the only person in a packed theater watching Tree of Life that wasn't visibly tortured by the movie. At the same time I don't usually venture out to see these narrative experiments without some serious praise backing them up. The cast is excellent, but while I like Malick, I can only stomach him on certain occasions.

All I got was an ad for some stupid shit potpourri

Anyways, I'm a fan of Malick and will see this, but his new formal tendencies do get a bit tedious and self-indulgent. It's unnerving how he gets so much reverence for these experiments because they're supposedly deep relationship dramas, while other stuff from interesting filmmakers gets dismissed as "pulp." Even Christopher Plummer wrote him a letter saying he needs to get a writer because his films are so "boring and pretentious."

Nope.You could put that dialogue over the trailer for Tree of Life and vice versa and no one would notice the difference.
