Knight of Cups continues Malick's recent trend of shedding extraneous plot and narrative to focus on emotions, thoughts and memories brought forward in his trademark fragmented visual and aural style. It, like his other films, is about age old universal themes, in this case the quest for enlightenment and the paradox of beauty. The sermon in the movie says that our now imperfect soul gets a taste of the higher existence it once knew whenever it is confronted with beauty, and so Rick immerses himself in all the beautiful sensual pleasures in the modern Babylon of LA. He is quite literally submerged all the time in ephemeral worldly pleasures, yet he still finds his life empty and devoid of any higher purpose and like his soul longing for transcendental gratification, he is always by the end again quite literally looking upwards to the heavens for a higher meaning. The movie is an impressionistic retelling of his search for God, the Wonder, nirvana, call it whatever - any metaphysical peak that will give his hollow life meaning. But at the end he realizes that the journey itself is the answer to his existential quest, not the means, and the nourishment for the shadow of perfection his anguished soul seeks.
Knight of Cups is not just any "story" movie, but a sweeping visual symphony of the search for spirituality in an increasingly materialist world.

Seems like you're trying to push this plebeian point of view daily now. It was excellent.

It wasn't exactly La Grande Bellezza, but it's nevertheless the third best jet set-themed film in history, the first being La Dolce Vita.

that's a fancy way of saying he's degenerated into people grabbing each other in slight slow motion set to one of them mumbling something about living life

it's like watching a 2 hour long life insurance commercial

>>64673331
There's no slow motion in the movie. You seem to watch a lot of TV if commercials are the first thing that come to mind when making a comparison with any movie.

I wouldn't say it's a bad film but it's definitely not a very good one. Easily his weakest. It has moments and there's a damn good stretch for about half an hour fairly early on (with that stuff at the party) but yeah it felt like a wasted opportunity. Too much of the same. One of his only movies where the style was pretty much in line with his last movie. It's a shame.

>>64672604
Look Malick is a good man who see the sadness in the world and wants to save people's souls, but he doesn't understand jackshit about cinema as an art form. Dude should've become a priest.

His films are the cinematic equivalent of inspirational Facebook quotes.

I'm Malick? Thanks, friend.

People love its "cinematography". And Malick confessed in one of those leaked letter he doesn't even believe in it (in pretty pictures). It's collateral damage.
>>
>>64674314

no, I think The New World is one of the best films I've ever seen. Also, why would I care what Malick thinks of his films? Just because Welles thought The Trial was his best movie doesn't mean that I have to.
