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. From Terrence Malick, the visionary director of The Tree of Life and To The Wonder, and starring Academy Award winners* Christian Bale (The Big Short, The Fighter, The Dark Knight Rises), Cate Blanchett (Carol, Blue Jasmine) and Natalie Portman (Black Swan, Thor) comes a stunning meditation on love, fate and fame.

+ very deep
+ Christian Bale
+ Beautiful imagery
+ Thought provoking
+ Great if you are religious
+ Dreamlike, immerses you in the world of the american dream, and after watching you feel as if you have been transported, and understand that worldly things are not going to bring ultimate joy and meaning, all is ultimately meaningless striving
Don't watch if:
- If you don't like pretentious dialogue
- If you don't like thinking
- If you don't strive for meaning in life but like to take it at face value
- You only watch action films
- If you watch reality TV
- If you are sleepy
-If you are cynical
Set amidst the fleeting social world of Hollywood, the disquieting nature of the piece derives from its candid, constant movement through the peripheral nature of what passes as 'connection' - in both relational and spiritual terms - whilst seeking to jar these throughout with shards of something more transcendent in nature breaking upon the thoughts and the through the memories of the central character.
I found the work's approach both disturbing and inspiring - in spite of all the inner numbing our world provides, a higher reality still calls to the appetite for eternity in our hearts, and this trilogy shows how so often beauty and true affection can provoke us towards satisfying the deepest thirst.
Malik has only been a recent discovery for me, but if you enjoy his work, this is certainly worth a watch, and deeper consideration.
Dialogue is mainly thought.
I can understand why others say this movie is boring, I also can see why others love it.
This film asks the viewer to make their own conclusions, and is meant to provoke self-thought about our own lives in comparison.
It's certainly different.
Christian Bale, [as you may not have seen him act before], and Brian Dennehy are outstanding.
Stars Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman.
Seems to be dealing with grief, and a man finding himself in Hollywood/LA.
Wonderful locations: desert, sky, sea, city & office interiors.
