Knight of Cups (2015)

2015 | USA | Terrence Malick | ★★★★

Starring Christian Bale and a well-assembled ensemble cast, Terrence Malick's alluringly abstruse, lullingly paced Knight of Cups is an impressionistically melancholy drama set in a world of empty glamour, filled with hypnotic tracking shots and committed performances.


"Rick is a screenwriter living in Los Angeles trying to make sense of the strange events around him. While successful in his career, his life feels empty. Haunted by the death of one brother and the dire circumstances of the other, he finds temporary solace in the decadent Hollywood excess that defines his existence. Women provide a distraction to the daily pain he must endure, and every encounter that comes his way brings him closer to finding his place in the world." Studiocanal
