Is there any director that more skillfully captures the beauty of humanity and the natural world in which we live than Terrence Malick?

At this moment, I would venture to say, “No.”

Watching this trailer for Terrence Malick’s new film, “To The Wonder,” reminded me of that today. I will forever owe a debt to this artist for showing me the world in a way I couldn’t see it on my own.

I still haven’t decided if “Days of Heaven” or “Tree of Life” is my favorite Malick film. It’s a good excuse to watch both again. If you haven’t seen them, I, of course, highly recommend that you do.

The advance word on “To The Wonder” is mixed, but I’m just happy to have another new movie from him in such a short time. It’s certainly unprecedented.

So watch this trailer for “To The Wonder.” Get some chills. And get excited. It comes out in April.
