Director: Terrence Malick
Stars: Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, Brian Dennehy

A empty movie studio lot;

an ageing father, a raging brother;

a spaghetti junction of freeways;

Knight of Cups column 200

women he’s picked up;

women he cares for but can’t connect with;

his ex-wife, caring for the seriously ill;

pelicans;

dubious life lessons from Antonio Banderas at an exclusive pool party;

 

the Pacific Ocean;   the Mojave Desert;   Las Vegas…..

From these fragments of narrative and emotion, Malick and the brilliant cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki follow screenwriter Rick (Bale) through a personal crisis in “mesmerising” (Metro) style. Malick’s unique, perplexing and fascinating approach attracts an A-list cast and creates beautiful moments that live long in the memory.
