dir. Terrence Malick – Venice & TIFF – No U.S. Distribution

How amazing would it be if we saw a Documentary Feature race boil down to Ava DuVernay and Terrence Malick?  It’s a narrative that the press would have a field day with.  Since Malick has been misstepping since “The Tree of Life,” critics have been (im)patiently waiting for him to get back on track.  With this sprawling look at the universe and its existence, along with narrations from Brad Pitt or Cate Blanchett depending on which version you see, AMPAS may feel enlightened by its message.
