To The Wonder
Terrence Malick’s bold companion piece to Tree of Life
Film snobs will know Malick from his gorgeous work on things like Tree of Life, The Thin Red Line, Badlands, etc. This time around, he’s gathered some of the most prime actors including Ben Affleck (this guy’s having one helluva couple years!), Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem, and Olga Kurylenko to flush out his love torn story. Stuck between two loves, Neil’s doubts are reflected through a priest’s crisis of faith. It’s bold, it’s unfashionable, and we’re completely into it. General admission.
‘At its best, Malick's cinematic rhapsody is glorious.’
