Terrence Malick's To The Wonder Trailer - Oblique, Pretty, Overly Familiar

The overwhelming majority of drama is inherently social, being about people interrelating and also the viewer relating to that interplay, and an incredible amount of social interaction is to do with facial perception. It’s conspicuous, then, that this trailer for Terrence Malick‘s To The Wonder features far less faces than the norm, and those we do see, we see typically from an obscure angle. Not one of the shots of people here uses the default, flat eye-level and invisible framing of a typical close-up or midshot.

Okay… but why? The film has its UK release set for February 22nd so I hope to find out what Malick is playing at then.

Fans of Malick might have fun chronicling how many of the shots in this trailer recycle imagery from The Tree of Life or even his earlier films. It’d be a long list, that’s for sure. At least the textures of Emmanuel Lubezki’s cinematography merit another go-around.
