Terrence Malick may not have made any new friends with this year’s “Knight Of Cups,” but the fact remains that he is still a filmmaker whose name holds weight. If a deserving film reaches eyeballs solely on the strength of his name recognition, then we couldn’t be happier.
Such is the case with “Almost Holy,” for which Malick is on board as executive producer. Directed by Steve Hoover (“Blood Brother”), “Almost Holy“ is the story about Gennadiy Mokhnenko, a Ukrainian pastor who has dedicated his life to rehabilitating drug-addicted children. Nicknamed “Pastor Crocodile,” he is also known on the streets of Mariupol as a vigilante who will do whatever it takes to carry out his mission.
You can check out the trailer for the film below. Featuring original music co-performed by Atticus Ross (“The Social Network,” “Gone Girl“), “Almost Holy” will be released on May 20th.
