“Knight Of Cups” is the newest film from Terrence Malick starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman and Nick Offerman. From the producer’s February 2015 description:
Rick is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.
In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems to put the world out of joint. His symphonic flow of images contrasts cold, functional architecture with the ageless beauty of nature.
Rick’s internal monologue coalesces with the voices of the women who cross his path, women who represent different principles in life: while one lives in the real world, the other embodies beauty and sensuality. Which path will Rick choose? In the city of angels and the desert that surrounds it, will he find his own way?
Knight of Cups will premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February with an anticipated release later in 2015. His most recent films were 2011’s “The Tree of Life” and 2012’s “To The Wonder”. Based on the dark, moody, inimitable atmosphere of the first trailer, Malick’s Knight of Cups will continue his dreamlike, fantasy immersion of life as he explores celebrity and excess using Bale’s character and his relationship with women. From the film’s early description:
Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep. Rick’s (Christian Bale) father used to read this story to him as a boy. The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth?
