About the Book

Terrence Malick's debut film, Badlands, announced the arrival of a unique talent. In the 40 years since that debut, Malick has only made 5 films, but they are distinctive in their beauty.

This book is not meant to be a biography of Terrence Malick. The purpose behind the book is to introduce readers to the extraordinary universe of his film-making and to aid them in understanding his work. And to do this through the words of his closest collaborators - cinematographers, set designers, costumers, cameramen, directors, producers, and actors such as Sean Penn, Martin Sheen, Sissy Spacek and Jessica Chastain. As their words flow from one to another, they form a fascinating, kaleidoscopic vision of American film and specifically Malick's artistic world. who make up a film.

This book is the fruit of a journey began years ago when Luciano Baracaroli, Carlo Hintermann, Gerardo Panichi and Daniele Villa made a documentary on the work of Terrence Malick, which led to the making of this book as well.

“This new book, put together by admiring young Italian film-makers, has found the right approach ... Explicitly not a biography, it is instead a medley of interviews and memoirs about working with Malick ... Mostly, though, it's telling practicalities, for it is a peculiarity of Malick's methods that he does not instruct even his actors about the meaning of their roles ... before [Jessica Chastain] auditioned for him, she watched all his films, which she already loved, "in chronological order again - to get a feeling of his world; I recommend it to everyone to watch all his movies again one after the other." So here's a plan for the dark days: get this tactful but highly informative book, get the films, and do just that, reading its chapters as you go.”
- Evening Standard
“[A] detailed read ... told through quotes from these who worked with the maverick ... An untangling insight into one of cinemas greatest enigmas.”
