"Our tale takes place during a severe winter, with frosts as keen as Christendom of the time. On such days it’s better to roost by the fire and remember tales of old, tales of foolish deeds scattered at random. Why even listen? Is there any sense in them? Why were they written? Tales told by chance, at random, for poetry’s sake, at the behest of a wandering echo, and because even the most ancient things lie in the web of present time…"   - Marketa Lazarová, dir. Frantisek Vlácil

Roger Ebert’s review of this film was the last review he submitted before his death. It was published posthumously. (x)

Malick, who is surely one of the most romantic and spiritual of filmmakers, appears almost naked here before his audience, a man not able to conceal the depth of his vision.

"Well," I asked myself, "why not?" Why must a film explain everything? Why must every motivation be spelled out? Aren’t many films fundamentally the same film, with only the specifics changed? Aren’t many of them telling the same story? Seeking perfection, we see what our dreams and hopes might look like. We realize they come as a gift through no power of our own, and if we lose them, isn’t that almost worse than never having had them in the first place?

Favorite Directors Showcase

Harmony Korine

The idea of a plot is unattractive, because I never liked people who plotted out their lives. I don’t like people who plot too much. I try to stay away from people who plot. But a story can be more liquid. It can be without a point. It can be more impressionistic.
