Some people are calling Joachim Trier‘s “Thelma” his first foray into the horror genre. It is not. “Thelma” is actually an indescribable mix of genres: drama, thriller, family, horror, mystery, comedy and, yes, even supern…

Say what you will about the latter day films of Terrence Malick, dude still knows how to create some gorgeous images. The director’s visual style is practically a trademark at this point, and it’s not a surprise that some of films Malick puts his name on as a producer (“The Better Angels,” “The Vessel“) look like they could’ve been directed by man himself. So it goes with the documentary “Awaken.” The documentary is actually from filmmaker Tom Lowe, and was shot over a 5-year period in more than 30 countries, using timelapse, time-dilation, underwater, and aerial cinematography techniques.

From “To The Wonder” to the recently released “Song To Song,” Terrence Malick‘s increasingly freeform style has seen him fall out of favor with many critics. The director’s approach of late has been focused on trying to capture spontaneous, one of a kind of moments, which has meant giving his actors pages on the day of the shoot, and leaving every narrative possibility open to be explored.

From time to time it’s good to remind the world (and ourselves) that we are The Playlist, and in addition to being movie lovers, we are also obsessed with music, specifically movie music. It also helps when a director gives us good reason to take a long look at their musical choices — i.e. by making a movie about music. Thankfully, impressionistic mastermind Terrence Malick has finally done so with his ephemeral, soul-searching new movie, “Song To Song.” It’s a film, like much of his work has been, about the search for divinity amid the tumult of life, only this time, the search goes… song to song.

The digital age has allowed Terrence Malick to shoot an absurd amount of footage for his films, and while the mind may boggle at the 8-hour first cut of “Song To Song,” it’s hardly the first time he’s gone long. In the run up to “The Tree Of Life,” cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki revealed that the director was putting a together a six-hour cut of the movie, from the over 300 miles of footage he had accumulated, with Malick’s longtime editor Billy Weber later teasing a DVD release.

“Malick’s now familiar themes and experimentations are beginning to suggest that, like all of us humans, he is stuck in a rut he can’t see or escape.” The post Song to Song Review appeared first on ComingSoon.net.

While he might hang with some of the biggest stars in Hollywood, and knows no film festival that won’t roll out the red carpet for him, Terrence Malick has kept a far, far distance from anything resembling press. He hasn’t given a formal interview in decades, however in recent years, he has shown a fondness for Q&A style talks, hitting a small arthouse cinema in New Jersey last fall to talk Roberto Rossellini’s “Journey To Italy,” taking part in a conversation at the Rome Film Festival in 2007, and more recently, popping up at screening in Los Angeles to chat with Werner Herzog.
