Knight of Cups ★★★★★

So the post office messed up happily and sent this to me a day early. So in a rush of excitement I've stayed up until 12:30 in the morning just to say that I was able to experience this on bluray before its official release. But seriously, I thought I was blown away before by my first viewing, but Knight of Cups experienced in full rich 1080p high definition with surround sound is unlike anything I've ever experienced. Malick's gorgeous nature cinematography, the mesmerizing medieval style score, the allegorical plot representing the classic Pilgrim's Progress, the perfect lighting, the camerawork with a personality all of its own. This is Malick's most personal and misunderstood film, and gorgeous beyond belief. This is Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, and Natalie Portman's masterpiece. A richly layered and complex moral tale coated with jaw dropping nighttime cinematography provided by the God of Cameras, Emmanuel Lubezki, and a perfect dream I'll never want to wake from. 

This is my Cloud Nine.
