Consensus: As visually sumptuous as it is narratively spartan, Terrence Malick's Song to Song echoes elements of the writer-director's recent work -- for better and for worse.

Globe and Mail

The haughtily unenlightened can joke and snipe and snore all the want. As evinced by Song to Song, Malick is operating in top form. If only we'd be bothered to do the work of making sense of it.

It's a haunting, doleful meditation on sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, the type of movie that can deeply move you and leave you wondering why.

[Terrance Malick] prefers to create a visual representation of love, which is fine in theory and juvenile in execution.

Terrence Malick's latest film isn't so much a movie as it is a freeform collection of whispers and beseeching looks.

"Song to Song" is Terrence Malick's first truly awful film.

This is the one with Ryan Gosling, and like Terrence Malick's two previous dramas it's a gauzy, improvised affair that looks like a photo essay out of Architectural Digest and regards its gorgeous, murmuring actors as if they were statuary.

"Song to Song" isn't the sleepy disappointment Malick's last two films were, but it's hard not to wish he'd wake up.

"Nothing felt real," Mara laments at the start of Song To Song. That, sadly, is an observation that can just as well be aimed at the movie as a whole.

Malick still has the visual touch but like To The Wonder, this is too self indulgent that weakens what is a mess of storytelling. The magic of the camera never… More
