For myself, Wes Bentley was always “the pretentious kid from American Beauty” – it didn’t help that he disappeared for more than twelve years, either – but the guy really, truly appears to be back. Now he’s “that guy from The Hunger Games with the strange beard.”
But he might be in a Terrence Malick movie, too! Amazing how that can just happen.

What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
