Knight of Cups ★★★½

Burial in a Malick film? Whoa. That couldn't have been more perfect.

I don't have words for this film yet but it moved me. Unlike a good stack of 2015 films, it made me feel something. Deeper than any words can describe. I was afraid Chivo's cinematography would let me down after the emptiness of The Revenant, but Malick's style and material give it weight. The overall gist seems simple to me: an empty soul looking to reinterpret the world. The details, however, remain in shadows...yet my heart seemed to know this film too well.
