I heard poor Jim Caviezel had a co-starring role as a windmill questioning the role of God in a modern world reduced to a single out-of-focus appearance in the background of a scene with Adam Driver

It’ll be interesting to see who buys the distribution rights.

Worse, he's still out there whittling down to a cross for Resurrection of the Christ

As far as once-esteemed filmmakers whose later works have had more of a mixed reception, Malick >>>>>>>>>> Gilliam for my money.

It sounds as if this might be slated to go into theatrical release in France soon after its Cannes debut, based on this UGC (large theater chain in France) tweet.

I see two actors actually standing inside a closed space, seems promising

Good grief. A nearly three hour film and all they can release is a 15 second clip.

All the films in the official selection have 15 second or so clips screened at the Cannes opening ceremony. That's what this is.

Interesting choice to use a wide-angle lens for such an intimate moment.

His past several films have essentially used very wide lenses for every moment. I would be willing to bet the same will be true of this one.

Looks less hyperactive than his last few. Feeling hopeful.

Echo that comment. What made me care not about his last few (though I did enjoy Song to Song) was their incessant overuse of pretentious voice-over and indeed hyperactivity that completely negated any connection with the characters. This seems, well like old Malick (which is exciting in my book) and I hope this will indeed be a return to form

To The Wonder I liked. All be it less than a Tree of Life. Song to Song and Knight of Cups I found unfortunately insufferable. There was definitely a transgression after Tree of Life. I hope this returns to more of the form of his previous works prior to ToL.

The embargo should be lifted on this in about two-ish hours.

Is there any reason to expect this to be better received than his last few films?

I'm looking forward to it regardless, but I'm anticipating the usual mixed to extremely negative reviews - plus a few ardent defenders.
