Book Description

September 30, 2003 027597247X 978-0275972479

Despite overwhelming acclaim for his work, director Terrence Malick remains an under-examined figure of an era of filmmaking that also produced such notables as Robert Altman, Francis Ford Coppola, and Martin Scorsese. His films BadlandS≪/i> and Days of Heaven remain benchmarks of American cinema, while his recent The Thin Red Line returned him to the pantheon of American directors. In this new study, authors James Morrison and Thomas Schur examine each of his films in detail, drawing on extensive archival research to construct a portrait of his working methods as a director as well as the thematic, aesthetic, and cultural components of his work.

Moreover, aside from tracing the development of Malick's filmmaking from its beginnings to the present, the book compares his finished pictures to their original shooting scripts, and so provides a unique means of exploring the nature of his working methods and the ways in which they influence the final products. Revealing the ways in which these films connect to and depart from evolving traditions of the last 30 years, The Films of Terrence Malick provides a comprehensive and penetrating study as well as an informative and adventurous work of film criticism.

4.0 out of 5 stars scholarly but not compete December 24, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love Malick's movies. This is a scholarly (think college) work which unveils much of his technique. Great for film studies, yet lacking some recent works due to when it was written. It does a great job of delving into why Malick moves us and even confounds us. I found the section on Heidegger was a bit lean, still, a fine starting part on one of cinema's few auteurs. Shipping was fast and the product was as described.
