Just got back from seeing To the Wonder
. People always say Malick's flicks are tedious. I've never shared this sentiment because I've enjoyed every movie the man has made. Not this one. Hot damn it was tedious. I loved The New World
and I don't need dialogue but this movie wasn't good enough to not have any; if that makes since. Of course there were great shots and great music and it was touching but it went nowhere. I came home and did some reading on it. The entire plot section on Wiki of the movie is two sentences; the movie is two hours long. Also, Jessica Chastain, Rachel Weisz, Amanda Peet, Barry Pepper and Michael Sheen were removed from the final cut.
Malick staaaaaaacked, Actors fuuuuuuuucked. I'm glad I saw it and sure it's better than 90% of the filth out there but I don't plan on seeing it again and there's no rush to see it if you haven't. It's 2 hours of eye candy though. Only Malick can make an Econo Lodge and a Sonic look gorgeous.
