THE NEW WORLD
2005, Warner Bros., 135 min, USA, Dir: Terrence Malick

Dreamy, effervescent and endlessly poetic, Terrence Malick’s reimagining of the 1607 founding of Jamestown and the legendary love triangle between Captain John Smith (Colin Farrell), Pocahontas (Q’orianka Kilcher) and John Rolfe (Christian Bale) has recently been described by critics as a “misunderstood masterpiece.” Malick superbly crafts and endows his tale with a raw, haunting sense of realism: he famously chose to use natural lighting, handheld cameras and a painstakingly detailed set constructed just down-river from the original site of Jamestown. Historically and cinematically important, THE NEW WORLD is a refreshingly complex alternative to the simplified national foundational myths that currently populate American culture.

TO THE WONDER
2012, Magnolia, 118 min, Dir: Terrence Malick

Writer-director Terrence Malick drew from his own life to take an abstract look at romantic connections and disconnections. While traveling in Paris, Neil (Ben Affleck) falls for Marina (Olga Kurylenko), bringing the Ukrainian divorcée and her 10-year old daughter with him to his native Oklahoma. But the relationship falters in this deeply spiritual drama, beautifully shot by Emmanuel Lubezki. With Rachel McAdams and Javier Bardem.
