Still don’t get "The New World"? Check this out.

In Stylus Magazine, L. Michael Foote looks closer at two particular scenes, and he brilliantly explores the way that Terrence Malick is conveying truth through his own unique style.

I haven’t come across many reviews that have put into words what it is about Malick’s movie that I love so much. Malick has a way of communicating through imagery that is very special, very hard to find, and it speaks more powerfully to me than conventional narrative filmmaking.

Foote does a great job of highlighting how it works by focusing on two scenes here. Read it. And then go watch the film again!

    Thanks to your comment, I realized that I’d dropped a line from the post. I’ve put it back in… and now the title should make sense.

    I’m a little confused by your title. It doesn’t sound like the critics are divided at all. Rather, Control seems like it’s the big hit of Cannes so far.
