Tree of Life is good. The Thin Red Line is also very good.
My favourite Malick film though is Knight Of Cups, which probably says more about where I am in life than anything else.
Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter… and Spring. Quiet, contemplative, beautifully shot.
Terry Gilliams' The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. The top of the heap of nostalgia films from my childhood including but not limited to The Gods Must Be Crazy, Willow, The Princess Bride, The Goonies, and The Adventures of Milo and Otis.
Three films will do.>>68
As a piece of cinematography, it is good. The story is nothing amazing. Cruise is bearable, Kidman is unbearable. Barry Lyndon is definitely underrated.
I used to really love 2001 but the "big picture" storyline has lost it charm on me over the years, contrast this with the very personal Knight Of Cups. I still own a segment of Kubrick's personal cut of 2001 that came with the first print run of The Stanley Kubrick Archives.
