    Discuss: Is Terrence Malick's 'To The Wonder' Another Profound Masterpiece Or A Parody Of His Worst Tendencies?

    The last movie that Roger Ebert reviewed was Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder," which seems appropriately fitting. "To the Wonder" is a movie of quiet contemplation, one where an Oscar-winning movie star like Ben Affleck is mostly found in stoic silence and conventional plot mechanics are either esc...

    Who Is Ben Affleck in Terrence Malick's 'To the Wonder'?

    Like all Terrence Malick's films, To the Wonder is art at its purest. This impressionistic take on a man (Ben Affleck) as he goes through a major relationship with Maria (Olga Kurylenko) and a lesser fling with Jane ( Rachel McAdams), is told almost entirely in voiceover, which blends with poeti...

    Review: Malick Stumbles with 'To The Wonder'

    There are no dinosaurs in Terrence Malick's sixth feature, but there are bison, sea turtles, prairies, toxic sludge, sun-dappled water, more prairies, a conflicted priest (Javier Bardem) and enough pirouetting by Olga Kurylenko to make you imagine that she probably felt dizzy at the end of each day'...

    Did Terrence Malick Use Test Audiences While Editing 'To The Wonder'?

    If there is one word that has come to define Terrence Malick's approach to filmmaking, it has been: secrecy. He generally doesn't reveal plot details (which would be pointless anyway), and he shoots tons of material, only to shape the movie in the editing bay, even if that means dropping actors out ...

    Olga Kurylenko got goosebumps in her first audition for Terrence Malick. It wasn't simply that the reclusive auteur was considering her for a leading role in "To The Wonder". Having flown out to meet him at his Austin, Texas base, she also marveled at Malick's uncanny intuition. "I felt almost a tel...
