Song to Song (Terrence Malick, 2017)

☼☼☼☼(☼) out of 10☼

Taking the "I don't even have to try anymore, 'cause my most ardent fans will swallow the microwaved hodgepodge anyway" attitude, Malick delivers a rather bland and messy high-brow, quasi-natural, faux-lyrical, almost self-mocking ensable cast drama which frequently appears as a frustratingly banal and dishonest soap-opera for hipsters, with Rooney Mara's loveliness, handsome locations and Emmanuel Lubezki's gorgeous cinematography being some of the film's few redeeming factors.


  1. Inspirisan tvojim tekstom napisao sam (hack) poemu, originalno postavljenu na moj Letterbox acc.

    Terrence Mallick, at seventy-three,
    won't change for Me.
    Microwaved hodgepodge or cold dish,
    I prefer over raw fish.
    Bland and messy, rather self-mocking,
    sun-glasses indoors and heavy smoking.

    Robotic ensemble-cast,
    plot is a thing of the past.

    Faux-lyrical, half-finished,
    soap-opera or romance for hipsters?

    Cups or Trees,
    New World cinema;
    ...It's all fine, but he just crossed
    my Thin Red Line.
