Song to Song

"A haunting meditation on sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, the type of movie that can deeply move you and leave you wondering why." - Minneapolis Star Tribune

"One of the loveliest images in 'Song to Song,' the latest from Terrence Malick, is of ripples expanding across a small pool of water, echoes of a woman’s quick step. Mr. Malick, one of cinema’s philosopher kings, embraces fluidity as a visual principle and his films are filled with life’s ebb and flow — He is a searcher, and that searching informs his visual style with its restless, moving pictures.

"There’s much to take in here, including the film’s narrative fragmentation, which requires you to go with the flow as you also puzzle together the story’s parts, themes and circling characters: Faye (Rooney Mara), a musician trying to find her way in Austin, Tex.; Cook (Michael Fassbender), a music producer and Faye’s sometime lover; and BV (Ryan Gosling), a musician and Faye’s other lover. A few other lovelies float in as well, including Rhonda (a moving Natalie Portman), a waitress who marries Cook; Amanda (Cate Blanchett), who has an affair with BV; and Zoey (Bérénice Marlohe), who has an affair with Faye. Patti Smith, Holly Hunter, Iggy Pop, Johnny Rotten and Val Kilmer also drop in.

"Mr. Malick began embracing narrative fragmentation years ago and it has increasingly characterized his films. There's much here that’s exhilarating, including the film’s ambitions and its seriousness. Seriousness in cinema is often viewed with suspicion and that’s as true now as it was when, say, Antonioni shook up the art. The difference is that now seriousness (and beauty and grace) is rarely part of a wider discussion, because that conversation is dominated by corporate cinema, where there’s often little to argue over and get excited by. There is, by contrast, much to admire in 'Song to Song' and much to argue with. So go, fall into its embrace, resist its charms, argue. This is a film to see." - New York Times
