Pocket Money

Directed by Stuart Rosenberg, Script by Terrence Malick. Starring Paul Newman and Lee Marvin, Hector Elizando, Gregory Sierra. 1972.

The directing of this movie is so odd, but not in a good way, it breaks the ability for the audience to stay within the film. Especially Lee Marvin's character who just doesn't act like any real person, no matter how quirky, would, and so makes it seem like I'm watching a performance by an actor which is the worst case scenario for a film in my opinion.

Oddly, this seems to be what allowed Terence Malik to make films in Hollywood and he is easily one of the best American Directors alive!
