The New World
Dir. Terrence Malick. 2005, 135 mins. 35mm. With Colin Farrell, Q’orianka Kilcher, Christopher Plummer. Malick reworks the story of John Smith and Pocahontas into a transcendent reverie on the clash between civilization and romance. Production designer Jack Fisk recreates the Jamestown settlement as a lumber and mud outpost alternately utopic and dystopic—as both a gateway to paradise and cesspool of hell. After its disappointing commercial release, the film built a cult following, and is now widely considered one of the director’s finest works.
