Knight of Cups

Knight of Cups ★★★★

Finally saw this. 

Malick is a lot like Refn or Arofnosky; people endlessly bitch about their movies, but, you know what you’re getting into when you go see a movie by them, so...I dunno. 

I see a Malick movie, I expect incredible cinematography, deconstruction and meandering, and some vaguely spiritual overlay which is hard to take seriously. That’s exactly what this film was. 

Also, you can tell pretty easily what scenes had a lot more polish and which ones were “okay, now...I know there’s no script, I’m turning the camera on, now go! talk! faster!”
