Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine34 - Just like Malick's movie which opened last March, Knight of Cups (click for T&T post) we've been given another long, glossy magazine shot, masquerading as a film, with an amazing cast, who are not provided with enough dialogue to keep you from taking several snoozes during the 130 min run time.
