Though I have yet to see Knight Of Cups which barely hit cinemas [I’m rectifying that later on tonight], I’ve become something of a fan of the enigmatic director of The Tree Of Life and The New World of late, a filmmaker who, perhaps because of his great age, has decided to become prolific all of a sudden. His work is genuinely poetic and beautiful to my eyes and ears, and – though I admit it can also be baffling – unique, one-of-a-kin filmmakers like him should be treasured in today’s increasingly commercialised climate. His latest film was once called Weightless and IndieWire now tell us that the title has been changed to Song To Song, as well as providing the above still that shows off stars Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, and Michael Fassbender….though of course this being Malick it’s no guarantee that they will actually be in the finished film [as you like to be busy these days Terence, can you please let us see those hours of deleted footage from The Thin Red Line?]

The plot is set against: the Austin, Texas music scene, and involves two entangled couples — struggling songwriters Faye [Rooney Mara] and BV [Ryan Gosling], and music mogul Cook [Michael Fassbender] and the waitress whom he ensnares [Natalie Portman] — chasing success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.

IndieWire also reports that a number of musicians and bands will appear in the film as well, including Patti Smith, Lykke Li, the Black Lips, Iggy Pop, Florence and the Machine, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
