On this episode we discuss the choices of Terrence Malick. New release KNIGHT OF CUPS goes back to similar territory about choices in love, or how the lack of making a choice has lead to an unfulfilling existence, which we also see play out in his previous films THE NEW WORLD and TO THE WONDER. However both of those films differ greatly in providing a straightforward narrative, so we also discuss the continued evolution of Malick as a filmmaker, where he assaults the viewer with an unrelenting amount of visual choices, and confounds them with his storytelling choices of dropping characters in and out of his films with little or no explanation. Unable to explain KNIGHT OF CUPS, we make the choice to discuss timing your sexual prowess by the length of a GREEN DAY song, how THE TREE OF LIFE is similar to BRING IT ON, and also a shoutout to NBA legend Tom Chambers.
