This has that classic air of laughable pretentiousness that only Malick can provide, but at least there seems to be some sort of plot here I might be interested in. I might watch it.

This looks like Malick's version of Requiem for a Dream, only told backwards. Rebirth of inner paradise.

To all you Malick haters around here: better watch something that isn't Tree of Life, like, you know - Badlands, Days of Heaven, Thin Red Line, or New World.

Even though there are certain elements in this trailer which are typical for his filmography, this doesn't feel like a typical Malick film at all. Anyway, I was quite interested for this and the trailer made me more excited. It seems quite a trip for Bale's character.

Even if you don't like/care about Malick… it's worth going to watch the film for the cinematography. Emmanuel Lubezki is bossing it at the moment.

Beautiful trailer. When Malick movies connect they're spiritual experiences. The Thin Red Line y'all.

I'll be crying during the scene with Bale and I'm assuming his father?
