Malick and Magic

David Thomson, in The Guardian:

How do I know how pleasant he is? I had dinner with him once. He could not have been nicer or more interesting. I forgot he was a film director and came to appreciate him as an intelligent man of the world — and a man who with intricate care has compiled his own legend as an impossible, unreachable recluse.
