I’ve been watching that trailer again and again during the last few months since it appeared online, and frankly, if the film is only half as good as that trailer, it’ll be fantastic:
Salon has a short piece up on the director Terrence Malick:
Terrence Malick has been the best-kept secret in American cinema for almost 40 years. The director of “Badlands,” “Days of Heaven,” “The Thin Red Line” and “The New World” is familiar to film buffs but mostly unknown to the general public, which knows him, if at all, as the man who took a 20-year hiatus between pictures and doesn’t do interviews for any reason, ever.
The article also includes a video on Malick’s film “Days of Heaven”.
