Terrence Malick: Film and Philosophy

A new title from Bloomsbury
A still from Terrence Malick's Tree of Life (2011)
Edited by Thomas Deane Tucker, Stuart Kendall, Bloomsbury publishes a new collection of essays entitled Terrence Malick: Film and Philosophy:
Terrence Malick's four feature films have been celebrated by critics and adored as instant classics among film aficionados, but the body of critical literature devoted to them has remained surprisingly small in comparison to Malick's stature in the world of contemporary film.

Malick's films are also open to other angles, notably phenomenological, deconstructive, and Deleuzian approaches to film, all of which are evidenced in this collection.

Terrence Malick: Film and Philosophy engages with Malick's body of work in distinct and independently significant ways: by looking at the tradition within which Malick works, the creative orientation of the filmmaker, and by discussing the ways in which criticism can illuminate these remarkable films.
