About the Movie

Knight of Cups follows writer Rick (Christian Bale, The Fighter, American Hustle) on an odyssey through the playgrounds of Los Angeles and Las Vegas as he undertakes a search for love and self. Even as he moves through a desire-laden landscape of mansions, resorts, beaches and clubs, Rick grapples over complicated relationships with his brother (Wes Bentley) and father (Brian Dennehy). His quest to break the spell of his disenchantment takes him on a series of adventures with six alluring women: rebellious Della (Imogen Poots); his physician ex-wife, Nancy (Cate Blanchett); a serene model Helen (Freida Pinto); a woman he wronged in the past Elizabeth (Natalie Portman); a spirited, playful stripper Karen (Teresa Palmer); and an innocent Isabel (Isabel Lucas), who helps him see a way forward.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: [Malick] seems to be working ever closer to some kind of ur-movie in his head - the film he has always wanted to see and maybe even be. But he's also in danger of working his way down to an audience of one. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Mar 10, 2016

Rotten: "Knight of Cups" may want to be understood as the portrait of a man plunging beneath the veneer of modern life, but it can just as easily be perceived as the self-portrait of a filmmaker in his own Versailles, letting himself eat cake and having it, too. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Mar 10, 2016

Fresh: More of the same from Malick, but as thin as it is, this is a trick that still hasn't run its course. – Will Leitch, The New Republic, May 26, 2016

Fresh: This is all simply Malick being Malick - you're either on his wavelength or you're not. – Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail, Mar 18, 2016

Beautiful but challenging

Knight of Cups is like walking through an art gallery - each shot a brush stroke and each scene a painting. It is undeniably gorgeous and inspired, but the lack of conventional narrative can be frustrating. To give an idea, Christian Bale is in every minute of the two-hour run time, but has maybe 30 lines in total, spoken in overdub. He plays an emotionally-detached Hollywood screenwriter who tries to find meaning through his many relationships with women. The film is like a dream of a midlife crisis. Essential viewing for Malick fans, but others may be perplexed.

Another Masterpiece.

Quite simply one of the most beautiful films ever made.

Have to be patient and expecting something new

If you are a Malick fan then you know what you are getting into but if your not then be prepared for a movie like nothing you have ever seen. I absolutely loved this movie I felt like I could feel the emotion out of it especially with Natalie Portman's section the music was perfect. I would say the movie was more like To The Wonder than Tree of Life. If you are a Malick fan I am confident you will consider this a masterpiece.
