Featured Film:

Knight of Cups at the Seven Gables and the Lincoln Square

The seventh feature from Terrence Malick, one of cinema’s most revered filmmakers, arrives on Seattle (and Bellevue) screens this week. Malick continues his push to narrative abstraction as he reunites with star Christian Bale, who previously worked with the director on The New World, one of the best films of the young century. In Knight of Cups Bale plays a successful screenwriter that sleeps with a bunch of pretty women but feels really bad about it. The film is as much a portrait of the hedonistic City of Angels, as it is of its protagonist. Come for the overlapping internal monologues, stay for Antonio Banderas diving into a pool in a tuxedo. Our Review.
