Synopsis


Knight of Cups
A Hollywood screenwriter (Christian Bale) wanders around Los Angeles and Las Vegas while reflecting on his life of excess and connection to the natural world. At the same time, he struggles to bond with his brother (Wes Bentley) and father (Brian Dennehy), and has a series of love affairs with the women who drift in and out of his life. Terrence Malick directed this lyrical character study, which co-stars Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Imogen Poots, and Teresa Palmer. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi

    The films of writer/director Terrence Malick is a journey unto itself. For the uninitiated, I can not tell how this film would play on its own and isolated terms; as I have watched and thoroughly enjoyed his prior films sequentially. Films such as "Badlands", "Days of Heaven", "The Thin Red Line" and "The New World" (which must be seen in the new Criterion edition that offers all three cuts of the film). With that said, "Knights of Cups" continues to make me look forward to the Malick films to follow. Malick may be the only film-maker who gained degrees from both Harvard and The American Film Institue; combining each of his studies into works that are both philosophical and visually innovative. His films are few and far between; but altogether rare gems.

    ...in the industry. This is an impressionistic masterpiece from good old Malick filled with an A-list and eclectic cast like Christian Bales, Brian Dennehy, Cate Blanchette, Natalie Portman and Theresa Palmer. I's also beautiful to look at.

    He has a style all his own. Very fiew directors have such a stamp that ou'd know exactly who directed it within the first couple minutes but Malick is one of those people. Problem is all of his movies set in present modern times seem to be lacking something. Too obviously scriptless. Just actors wandering around with go pros. Part of you wants to think it artsy but at some point you wonder if he is just getting lazy. I rather appreciated it more when he took time between films. As a collector of his films I bought this blu ray without seeing it first, and its good to support films LIKE this but as for this film itself... eh...
