Director: Terrence Malick
Starring: Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender
Genre: Drama
Duration: 129 mins
Rated R

The latest film from writer-director Terrence Malick, whose reputation largely rests on his classic films “Badlands” (1973), “Days of Heaven” (1978) and “The Tree of Life” (2011). In Malick’s eternally recurring vision of paradise lost, familiar patterns of human behavior – intoxication and disillusionment, seduction and betrayal – will reproduce themselves in any milieu. Even a place as distinctive as the Austin, Texas music scene will become a familiar and quintessentially Malickian landscape. Malick, not breaking the rules of linear storytelling so much as seeming utterly ignorant of their existence, turns these environments into the staging ground for an intensely stylized human ballet.
Starring Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender, Ryan Gosling, Natalie Portman, & Cate Blanchett with appearances by Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, Johnny Rotten and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
