Surprised that one of these didn't exist already for maybe the most singular American director alive and working... I just banged this out this morning, so please provide any further web links, print resources, or missing info and I'll update as needed.

Why, we literally have a separate thread for every film he has made, this is totally unnecessary

Wouldn't the discussion of a filmmaker happen first, and then this be a threadsplit? I started the PTA thread because there was nowhere to put an article on Boogie Nights, but like Domino mentioned - we have threads for all these films.

What about when we want to talk about what hat he was most recently seen wearing?

Well, uh... hmm... I guess if you look at it that way, it is unnecessary. But look at that nice picture I found of Terry (not easy) and all the nice links and such!

Seriously, I may have been a little too enthusiastic after yesterday's trailer, so feel free to send this topic off to live on a nice farm upstate somewhere, but I don't see what it hurts to let the runt live, even as a placeholder until a more comprehensive conversation of the man's career happens to occur.

I dunno, it's nice to have all the links and stuff in one place, even if there isn't really any discussion yet

Terrence Malick sends emails by having an assistant scan his typewritten letters.

I remember a post on the RedUser forums years and years ago about how one of the RED camera owner-operators there got to spend a night driving around with Terrence Malick, Sean Penn and Lubezki shooting driving shots for Tree of Life. So he was beginning to experiment then, but I don't think any of those shots made the final edit.

The scenes in To the Wonder where Kurylenko returns to Paris are shot on some version of the RED camera, reportedly to give contemporary Paris a cold, distant mood. And there are also the consumer video shots at the beginning.

I feel like there should be some sort of scoreboard about film/digital (or those who use both, like Scorsese is fond of doing).

The opening shots of To the Wonder were actually shot using the Digital Harinezumi. I have a camera myself, and it's really wonderful, like replicating 8mm footage through a digital lens.

Voyage of Time officially announced, with two different versions to be released in both IMAX (a 40-minute short narrated by Brad Pitt) and 35MM (feature length version narrated by Cate Blanchett) formats.

The article also mentions that it's being distributed by Broad Green Pictures in North America. They are an upstart company funded by a pair of billionaire brothers. They recently picked up 99 Homes and Eden...seems to be a company worth keeping an eye on. It'll be interesting to see who they partner with on eventual dvds and blu rays. (Please; not Lionsgate!)
