I learned the other day that Terrence Malick finished the script for The New World in the late '70s, and it lay dormant till in was made into the 2005 feature film.

Isn't that weird? What other amazing scripts does Malick have just sitting around (just waiting for a few decades to pass)?

Have you ever seen The Thin Red Line by Malick?

Hey, I randomly found your blog today and I'm glad that I did. Very interesting stuff. I'm a conservative blogger and seminary student in Chicago (rjmoeller.com). Keep up the good work!

Erik: No, I have not. I believe (maybe I'm wrong?) that is his only film I haven't seen. I think I've got to be wrong about that.

Anyway, I will be wrong for sure soon. Did you know he is coming out with two films in the near future? (This is me, trying to contain my excitement.)

Robert: Welcome! Thank you for your kind words, and I hope you enjoy.
