To the Wonder
directed by Terrence Malick
Uptown Theatre, starts Friday

Malick is working faster these days. As Ryan Gosling, appearing in a forthcoming Malick joint, recently told The Playlist, the director is "cutting like five movies right now." Will working faster loosen Malick up, free him to make more mistakes and, possibly, some glorious messes? With To the Wonder, he may be aimlessly dancing around old stereotypes. But he's dancing as fast as he can, and the strain means something. He hasn't made a great movie. At least he's made a human one.
