Screenwriter Rick (Christian Bale) wanders looking for love as his life wanders as he searches for love through six women including ex-wife Nancy (Cate Blanchett), model Helen (Freida Pinto), Isabel (Isabel Lucas), married woman Elizabeth (Natalie Portman), stripper Karen (Teresa Palmer), and Della (Imogen Poots).  KNIGHT OF CUPS is another stream of consciousness movie from writer/ director Terrence Malick as he uses the improve poetry to examine love and life.  Sometimes the movie is interesting and reflective whether at other times it is a frustrating movie to watch due to its non-linear and unconventional narrative structure.   The cinematography of Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki is beautiful along with a great score from composer Hanan Townshend.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES:

THE MAKING OF KNIGHT OF CUPS is a promotional featurette that has interviews with cast and crew as they talk about the making of the movie and how it is to make an improve movie with Terrence Malick with no script

 

Previews for the following movies are also on the DVD: LAST DAYS IN THE DESERT, THE DARK HORSE, 99 HOMES, I SMILE BACK, LEARNING TO DRIVE, SONG OF LAHORE, SAMBA, EDEN, 10000 KM, BREAK POINT, and A WALK IN THE WOODS

 

FINAL ANALYSIS:  KNIGHT OF CUPS is an interesting and frustrating reflective movie experience which some will embrace while others will think it is one of the worst movies they have watched.
