How to watch a Terrence Malick movie

Cineplex Magazine – How to watch a Terrence Malick movie

Filmmakers don’t get much more enigmatic than Terrence Malick.

In an industry where so much depends on putting a face to a product, the reclusive Malick doesn’t appear in movie promotions and all but refuses to speak with the press, which, of course, makes him even more worth knowing.
