The river leads back there: The Films of Terrence Malick

When watching a film by director Terrence Malick, you are going to be treated to some of the finest cinematography there is to offer. A major component to all of his films is the struggle to find the balance between man and nature. The director's reclusiveness and need to achieve perfection in every frame has drawn comparisons to such masters as Stanley Kubrick. The release date for the director's latest film Tree of Life is currently unknown. But rest assured, it sounds like it just may be his magnum opus. For those who are not familiar with Malick's work, I highly suggest checking out Badlands, Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line & The New World.
