(Watch) Trailer for Terrence Malick’s Latest Incomprensible Film, “Knight of Cups”


Here it is. The trailer for “Knight of Cups,” Terrence Malick’s latest masturbatory exploration of breathless narration laid over provocative images. It follows “To the Wonder” and “Tree of Life,” sleep aids for insomniacs. Cate Blanchett and Christian Bale look like rich Hollywood types who fight in their gated driveway while orgies go on in the background. Also, there are shots of water, and wind blowing. Malick was once a genius. He should have stopped while he was ahead. No wonder JD Salinger stopped publishing. He knew what he was doing.
