Terrence Malick

Terrence Malick

“I film quite a bit of footage, then edit. Changes before your eyes, things you can do and things you can’t. My attitude is always ‘let it keep rolling.'”

Terrence Malick is a director whose work doesn’t sit too well with everybody, but I personally love his films. While it’s hard to talk about his films without sounding (and feeling) really pretentious, that’s part of the draw really. His films cut down to the basics, and end up being startlingly profound in the process. While he can get a bit self-indulgent at times, his films still end up being way more interesting than most.
