Ennio Morricone - Days of Heaven

The track Days of Heaven from the Days of Heaven OST
Ty Fenelus's insight:

Famous composer Ennio Morricone, who produced the soundtrack for films such as Fistful of Dollars and The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, also composed the soundtrack for Terrence Malick’s Days of Heaven. Morricone has stated that working with Malick on the score was demanding since Malick wanted to be involved in every creative aspect of the soundtrack.

With Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life – only his fifth film in 38 years – about to open, Tim Robey marvels at the mystique that surrounds this reclusive US director.
Ty Fenelus's insight:

Terrence Malick is also notorious for taking quite a long while in between the creation of his films. Prior to Tree of Life which came out in 2011, Malick’s last film, The New World, was created in 2005. Fans had to wait six years for Tree of Life which was set for release in 2008. Most strikingly, previous to all this, Malick took a 20 year hiatus from film between Days of Heaven (1978) and The Thin Red Line (1998). What is interesting is that Malick’s new film To The Wonder is out in early 2013. Malick has stated that he has received a burst of inspiration since Tree of Life and has gone on to create two films very close together in their release time which is a bit unusual considering the director’s long release date.

The New World (2005)

The New World (2005) | Terrence Malick | Scoop.it
Ty Fenelus's insight:

As seen in this still from Malick’s The New World, cinematography holds great importance and is another prevalent aspect of Malick’s stylistic choice. Malick is revered for his use of images in a strikingly beautiful and artistic manner. Through cinematography, Malick’s films become less of a linear narrative but instead a compilation of images and stunning photography all based on an overarching theme.

Alexandre Desplat - River - OST. The Tree Of Life

Ty Fenelus's insight:

This audio track created by Alexandre Desplat is from Malick’s film recent film Tree of Life. The use of music is a prevalent artistic choice in Malick’s films. It is often combined with sweeping scenes of magnificent cinematography and used during lofty and significant courses of the plot. In a way, Malick uses music as another story-telling technique to convey the narrative, which, in my opinion, makes Malick’s films an extremely unique and intriguing experience.

Ty Fenelus's insight:

In this article, The Guardian journalist Euan Ferguson writes how Malick’s upcoming film To the Wonder  is not “a popcorn film” but one that begets intense thought and intellect from the viewer. Furguson interviews actress Olga Kuylenko who states that this film requires one to be in the mood to reflect on respectively large concepts such as life, time and love. This article is significant because it demonstrates how Malick tends to create films that gear towards philosophical thought and demand a much more concentrated effort on the viewer to understand.

Terrence Malick’s editor Billy Weber on the art of voiceover.
Ty Fenelus's insight:
In this video, Editor Billy Weber describes how he and Terrence Malick first began using voice-over in Badlands and how this unique filming choice has carried on to Malick's other films. Weber talks about how Malick first wanted to use voice-over to make Badlands sound like a romance magazine but then, through experimentation, Malick decided that he would use voice-over more prevalently in his later films.

The Tree of Life - Eternity

 

 

Ty Fenelus's insight:

Another defining characteristic of Malick’s films is that many of them contain scenes in which the characters ask thoughtful and soul-searching questions to an ambiguous listener. During these sort of voice-over monologues, the thoughts presented here are not ways to move along the plot or give some vague sense of narration to the viewer. Instead these moments in Malick’s films introduce ideas, notions for the audience to ponder and contemplate. I believe that this aspect of Malick’s filmmaking is what really conveys his distinct artistic approach and purpose. Not many filmmakers do this. Not many force the audience to think deeply about philosophical concepts that we so often fail to realize relate to us. I believe this is what seperates Malick from other directors of our time.

Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line

Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line | Terrence Malick | Scoop.it
Ty Fenelus's insight:

Terrence Malick’s The Thin Red Line shares some similarities with Steven Spielburg’s Saving Private Ryan. Both films came out in 1998 and were hailed as being one of the most defining war films of their time. The Thin Red Line was nominated in many similar categories as Saving Private Ryan at the 1998 Academy Awards. While Malick’s film is viewed as a more philosophical take on the topic of war and its effect on the human psyche, Saving Private Ryan also garnered attention for being a realistic take on war. These two films have made a significant impact in the genre of war films.

Badlands - The First Four Minutes

The first four minutes of Terrence Malicks incredible debut film BADLANDS. Out now on Blu-ray and DVD: http://www.criterion.com/films/28406-badlands (Terrence Malick's earlier stuff is great.
Ty Fenelus's insight:

Malick began his directing career with the creation of Badlands (1973). Malick’s directing debut has been hailed for being the best directorial debut since Orsen Welles for Citizen Kane. Often referred to as a much grittier version of Bonnie and Clyde(1967), the film is loosely based on the Starkweather/Fugate murder spree and is also praised for combining transcendent elements (such as love) to its dark subject matter. Badlands was the beginning of Malick establishing his artistic voice in film and (fun fact) it is chosen to be preserved at the Library of Congress.
