TO THE WONDER @ Landmark, Friday, 4/12, 7:25 PM

I think that Terrence Malick is one of the most important directors of the 20th century, even though I dislike most of his movies. His ambition, to capture on film the mystery, ambiguity, and absurdity of the human condition, exceeded his artistry, time after time...until Tree of Life, when he finally got it right. For me, he entered the ranks of great film makers. Not everyone agrees with me on this...a lot of people walked out after 20 minutes. After apprehensively watching the trailer for this one, I have a feeling that something similar might happen...but I don't want to miss the chance to see what he's got to say this time...

Tickets for the 7:25 PM screening are available at Landmark's website. I'm in K1..

Dinner before the movie will be at the Westside Tavern at 6 PM.

Synopsis:

The anticipated new feature from renowned filmmaker Terrence Malick (Tree of Life, The New World), TO THE WONDER boldly and lyrically explores the complexities of love in all its forms. Parisian single mother Marina (Olga Kurylenko) and Midwestern tourist Neil (Ben Affleck) fall madly in love in France and relocate to Oklahoma with Marina’s young daughter to start a life together. As their relationship wanes and her visa nears expiration, Marina makes the acquaintance of a priest and fellow exile (Javier Bardem) who is struggling with his faith, while Neil renews a relationship with his childhood sweetheart, Jane (Rachel McAdams).

      This was meant as a comment on "To the Wonder," not the meetup itself, which as always was a nice group of friendly people.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
