The Magic Hours

The Films and Hidden Life of Terrence Malick

Terrence Malick is the most enigmatic film director currently working. Since the early seventies, his work has won top prizes at film festivals worldwide and brought him wide recognition as the cinematic equivalent of a poet. His life is shrouded in mystery, leaving audiences with rumors, few established facts, and virtual silence from the filmmaker himself following his last published interview in 1979. This has done nothing to dim the luminous quality of his films, from Badlands (1973) and Days of Heaven (1978), to later works such as The Thin Red Line (1998), The Tree of Life (2011), and A Hidden Life (2019).

The Magic Hours: The Life and Films of Terrence Malick is the first true biography of this visionary filmmaker. Through interviews and in-depth research, John Bleasdale reveals the autobiographical grounding of many of Malick's greatest films as well as the development of an experimental form of filmmaking that constantly expands the language of cinema. It is the essential account for anyone wishing to understand Malick and his work.

About the Author

John Bleasdale is a film critic and writer whose work is regularly published in Variety, Sight and Sound, the Economist, Financial Times, and the Guardian. He has contributed to two books: Terrence Malick: Film and Philosophy and The Way of Nature and the Way of Grace. He also hosts the podcast Writers on Film, which was featured in Time Out's Top 20 Best Podcasts.

Reviews
