Alicia I love this movie so much
FeistyUpper If you don't like this, we can't be friends.
ScoobyMint Disappointment for a huge fan!
BelSports This is a coming of age storyline that you've seen in one form or another for decades. It takes a truly unique voice to make yet another one worth watching.
bogdan-purcareata I was happy to see this sort of a cast to be part of this sort of a movie. I was impressed.It's a contemplative movie, such as La Grande Bellezza and the like. It doesn't have much of a plot, but the feelings expressed, the shots, the gentle suggestions make for an everlasting trip. I was calming to see how easy this movie made me at peace with myself, presenting a scenery of fear and anguish in a most profound way.It's true, it's either hate it or love it, it was certainly worth it for me. The actors' performances were brilliant, albeit minimal. I don't believe the protagonist utters more than 20 or 30 lines. But it's an atmosphere of endless flow and deep introspection. A great choice for personal reflection and meditative retreat.
michaeltrivedi Malick's Knight of Cups is not a movie to play around with. It has it's ups and downs, and is about being Lost in the City of Angels. The movie can be summarized by what a stripper says to the main character in the club. You live in a fantasy world, don't you. Something along the lines of that, but it was a great scene to watch.This is a cool movie. It is like any other Malick movie, and most people can not bear the type of direction. But I would say compared to his other films, this one accomplished what it needed to. A very powerful thing I encountered when watching this film is that the first 3/4's of the movie is so deep and intriguing that it won't let you go. But by the last quarter, it purposefully bores you until the end, where you see a car driving off something north on the PCH, indicating you to go explore for yourself. The main protagonist can be anyone. But don't let the coolness of the movie keep you captivated by Los Angeles. There are plenty of other places just as nice, if not nicer.Definitely check this movie out, I would highly suggest it!8 Stars
ThurstonHunger Did I just watch a two hour perfume commercial from Malick? For a perfume that I cannot afford...and perhaps no man can, lest he loseth his soul?I dunno...A completely improvised film where the main character never speaks is going to require a lot on your the viewer. So check your mood before watching this perhaps, I'd recommend a long and peaceful day of sensory overloading at the beach perhaps.The film often has characters born of water. Either at private beaches or at the swimming pools of exclusive mansions. As per the title, there are tarot cards and a reading (in Russian, or something Slavic-ally chic?)Lots of music through-out as emotional inducer, and the main theme was it a riff on Ravel? Is this film a "Ten" for the art-house set? And instead of one Bo Derek, you get a full set of gorgeous muses. Collect 'em all.Actually the full main theme has some pretty amazing vocal parts 19+ min that I don't recall hearing in the film. Nice to see Brian Dennehy, and was there some Oedipus aire mixed in the concoction? Was the tragedy in the family spurred by Daddy Dennehy's indiscretions, and does our hero the Knight then have that same wanderlust, granted cut by a mysterious ennui. Mom was only scene walking away I think?Bale is fine in what might have been a challenging role. Although playing tag with leading ladies leaning over ledges is that much of a challenge? IS this a primer for young men before diving into Tinder. Say less, act disinterested and be insanely wealthy. Even then, no love lasts.Wish I'd seen it on a big screen, especially in sensurround for that earthquake (what was that about?) Angry gods in helicopters attacking?When the perfume evaporates, what is left? For most of us, it's the alarm clock the next day and off to work. For the fortunate few, apparently philandering and the life of a philosopher king.
Rich Whitcomb Knight of Cups is a dumb story about a guy finding himself in life with different lovers. I really wanted to see this because of all the great actors in it, but even that didn't help unfortunately. This entire movie is dry, boring, and a complete waste of time and money. I felt like I was in a commercial for good looking people that would never end. The only thing missing are the name brands for the clothes, perfume, and cologne they're wearing. I recently watched a movie called "Gerry" and it's slow as hell, but I thought it was definitely way better than this movie and that's saying something. Don't say you weren't warned if you decide you need to see this like I did.
