At long last, Mal­ick gets busy

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Now, this is just get­ting silly. You wait decades for a Ter­rence Mal­ick film and then sud­denly you can’t move for work by the ad­mired di­rec­tor.

Later this year – un­less Tree of Life- style de­lays set in – we should see Ben Af­fleck and Jes­sica Chas­tain in a still-un­ti­tled project, and Natalie Port­man is to star in a fur­ther two Mal­ick films, due in 2013. (The Blue Rider) Mes­meris­ing, mighty elec­tro-pop from the Syd­ney new­bie, which should be blast­ing out from ev­ery ra­dio sta­tion in the land. (Op­ti­mum) Ethe­real folk tunes, alien fairy tales and psy­che­delic reels from Fair­port Con­ven­tion, Vashti Bun­yan, The Free De­sign and many more, com­piled by Mark Pritchard.

(Arista) It will be gems like this we will re­mem­ber in years to come, rather than Live­line fum­ing about her 2010 02 gig.
