Re: General Movie Discussion Part II
Drive didn't fail at all. You know what did though? The New World. I'm just not a Malick fan, though I did like The Tree of Life. Too much mumbling, yelling, dramatic to the point where it's comical. The movie looks good and the score is fantastic, I'll give it that. There is some really bad editing in this one as well. The love story does work I guess, but I just didn't care. It wasn't compelling. It wasn't fascinating. It wasn't enthralling. I'm totally ok for movies to have loose narratives and have images drive the action and be slow builds, but this one just doesn't work at all.
