Terrence Malick

Terrence Malick (1943 - )

"When people express what is most important to them, it often comes out in cliches. That doesn't make them laughable; it's something tender about them. As though in struggling to reach what's most personal about them they could only come up with what's most public."

Surprised that one of these didn't exist already for maybe the most singular American director alive and working... I just banged this out this morning, so please provide any further web links, print resources, or missing info and I'll update as needed.

Why, we literally have a separate thread for every film he has made, this is totally unnecessary

Wouldn't the discussion of a filmmaker happen first, and then this be a threadsplit? I started the PTA thread because there was nowhere to put an article on Boogie Nights, but like Domino mentioned - we have threads for all these films.

What about when we want to talk about what hat he was most recently seen wearing?

Well, uh... hmm... I guess if you look at it that way, it is unnecessary. But look at that nice picture I found of Terry (not easy) and all the nice links and such!

Seriously, I may have been a little too enthusiastic after yesterday's trailer, so feel free to send this topic off to live on a nice farm upstate somewhere, but I don't see what it hurts to let the runt live, even as a placeholder until a more comprehensive conversation of the man's career happens to occur.

I dunno, it's nice to have all the links and stuff in one place, even if there isn't really any discussion yet

I remember a post on the RedUser forums years and years ago about how one of the RED camera owner-operators there got to spend a night driving around with Terrence Malick, Sean Penn and Lubezki shooting driving shots for Tree of Life. So he was beginning to experiment then, but I don't think any of those shots made the final edit.

The scenes in To the Wonder where Kurylenko returns to Paris are shot on some version of the RED camera, reportedly to give contemporary Paris a cold, distant mood. And there are also the consumer video shots at the beginning.

I feel like there should be some sort of scoreboard about film/digital (or those who use both, like Scorsese is fond of doing).

The opening shots of To the Wonder were actually shot using the Digital Harinezumi. I have a camera myself, and it's really wonderful, like replicating 8mm footage through a digital lens.

And yes, the smoking-pensive coin-throwing Riverboat gambler is... Terrence Malick

Malick made a VR short that will premiere at this year's SXSW.
“TOGETHER” is a VR experience about the power of human connection. The piece fuses dance and technology, putting the viewer in the middle of an emotional narrative about breaking down barriers and bringing people closer.

The experience was created in collaboration with Palme d'Or winning director Terrence Malick, Academy Award nominated cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto and movement artists Jon Boogz and Lil Buck along with Facebook's creative studio, The Factory.

VR challenged Malick and Prieto to rethink the traditional narrative structure and deliver a piece that uses VR to tell a timeless story about human connection.

I wonder how he'll release it. I will laugh my ass off if he puts it out on Steam.

Huh, that M83 song on the soundtrack was my daughter's favorite song when she was 3. More Malick in short bursts like this please!
