Critical Reaction: “To The Wonder” (PODCAST)

Is there a filmmaker more enigmatic than Terrence Malick? Over his decade spanning career, the highly elusive Malick has only made 7 movies, each praised, debated, and endlessly studied thanks to Malick’s ability to blend the personal with the massive, the linear with the nonlinear, the macrocosm with the microcosm. From Badlands to Days of Heaven, The Tree of Life, and more, Malick has forced his viewers to question and come to terms with life in ways that most filmmakers only dream of. As expected, his latest, To The Wonders, follows this trend. Starring Ben Affleck, Olga Kurylenko, Rachel McAdams, and Javier Bardem, To The Wonder manifests Malick’s ideas on love and is once again causing viewers to fervently debate on the meanings and purpose of Malick’s vision and ideas. While it’s almost impossible to talk about a Malick film after only one viewing, our critics Zack Sharf and Mike Murphy give it a go in our latest Critical Reaction Podcast. So just how good is To The Wonder? Join in on the discussion below:
