Olga Kurylenko on working with Terrence Malick on this still untitled 2012 release (First Lua Beta Test)…

What was it like to work with a filmmaker like Terrence Malick, for his film with Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams?

KURYLENKO: It was wonderful. He is the most wonderful creature in this world. I love him. I’m passionate about him. He’s extremely smart, extremely deep, and profoundly kind and real. It’s not a mask. He doesn’t pretend. He is real. He’s a wonderful filmmaker, and very shy. If he were to read this, he would say, “Why would you say this? It’s not true!” He’s so sweet. He thinks I’m exaggerating, but I’m not. And, the way he works totally fit me. You never know what you’re doing. It’s at the last moment and very spontaneous, and I like that. As much as the fast pace can be difficult, not knowing what I’m doing is actually totally fine. It scares a lot of actors. I’ve heard that others were terrified and were like, “What do you mean, I’ve got no script? I’ve gotta know what I’m doing!” And I’m like, “I trust you, Terrence. Tell me whatever you want. I’m here.” I like that. I like to play as I go.

Magic-City-Olga-KurylenkoWhen you do a project like that, do you even know what character you’re playing?

KURYLENKO: Yeah. He spoke to me and told me what it was. He tells you. You don’t read it. You listen to the story for a couple of hours, you take it in, and then you meet him again and listen again and talk. He likes to go for a drive and talk. I think he took every actor for a drive and would talk, and you just take it in and become that character. It gets into you. And then, I just know who I am and it’s not the character, it’s me, suddenly. And then, from there, something very real comes out that’s spontaneous. That’s awesome. That means you don’t need to know what you’re doing. As that person, you can go and move that chair or pour yourself a coffee, and you’ll be that person and it will be real. There’s no acting. You just are. That’s wonderful. I wish everybody worked that way. I only want to work with him now. Not to offend others, but you just think, “Wow, I would love to work with him again.”

I wasn’t there for very long, and we worked really long hours, so I didn’t really get a huge taste of it, but it was really beautiful [Malick] couldn’t have been lovelier. He has a very, very particular way of shooting. He calls things out to you while you’re shooting, and it’s very, very different than other work that I’ve done…You just go to work, and they do a master shot and then a medium and then a close-up and then a close-up, and he’s nothing like that. He’s like a jazz musician. There’s a lot of variety, and he doesn’t do the same thing twice. He improvises and he lets you riff, and then he’ll shout something out to you that he wants you to say in the middle of the scene. It’s a very mysterious and wonderful, magical process…

Update on Terrence Malick’s follow up to Tree of Life:

Mr. Malick has already shot — and is starting to edit — his sixth feature. Set in the present day, the still-untitled film stars Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams, and has been described as a romance. As always with Mr. Malick, everyone involved is tight-lipped, but Mr. Lubezki and Mr. Fisk, who both worked on it, said it is his boldest film yet. “It makes ‘Tree’ almost seem old-fashioned,” Mr. Fisk said.

Growing more radical with age, Mr. Malick seems intent on evolving the language of narrative cinema, on finding a form free and flexible enough to encompass the big, unanswerable questions of human existence. “Every film now is almost a frustration, because Terry doesn’t know if he’s said enough,” Mr. Fisk said. “But I also think he’s finally making movies exactly the way he wants to.”

LUA Communications was born on this set.  It was a pleasure working alongside Terry’s crew.  We learned more than we could have ever imagined.  Cannot wait to see this masterpiece unfold.

Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life (2011)

Check out the trailer to Terrence’s next film, Tree of Life, starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn.  With a May 2011 release date, this will be Terry’s 5th film and first since 2005’s New World.  Terrence just completed filming his 6th film, still untitled, this past December and is currently in post-production.  

The cinematography in this trailer truly breath taking.  The final line of the trailer is beautiful, “Unless you love, your life will flash you by”.  

So give someone you love a hug today, it’s good for both of you.
