A belated thanks for the Follow! A lot of your favorites are on my watch list, so great to meet you.
ha! i deleted your post and i didn't mean to. i wanted to rephrase my response and deleted the wrong one d'oh. did u see it at theater? i imagine that could make a difference too. too many wrong notes, but like he's trying so hard to reach the next level right? anyway i haven't written him off just yet ;)
Lol, it happens. Yea I saw it at a theater, a small arthouse one though. There were like 7 people in there including myself. U? I'm not even sure what exactly he was trying to do and I haven't read any reviews yet, but I'm still not even sure what happens in the end. I don't think I could ever write him off though. Even in his films that I don't like (The Thin Red Line, The New World), there are so many scenes that are so beautiful, not just visually either (though that's clearly a large part). I remember thinking the first time I saw TOL, that he really has a way with matching operatic music with beautiful montages lol. Terry's musical choices are rather good now that I think about it. I thought the same thing today, especially with the Bardem montage, and the main one with McAdams, even though I think the film as a whole doesn't quite work. Even with all the beauty though I was never crazy about any Malick film...lots of specific scenes though lol.
I liked TOL a good bit. It felt the closest thing to I think is the perfection of his craft. "Red Line" is definitely different from his previous efforts, more philosophical, his camera more restless, but still not as fleshed out as it could have been, same for "New World," but I think TOL is where he hit his stride. I hope he has some films at least as good or close to as good as TOL left in him.
