‘Melancholia’ Is A Beautiful Portrait Of Depression And The End

Based on the peppy title I have given to this review, audiences should know they should be bracing themselves for doom; although I could be misleading you, were you not to look further.  Earlier in 2011, Terrence Malick arose from the depths of wherever he goes in the many years in between his films to […]
