Terrence Malick does what he does best in Knight of Cups – confuse the audience with beautiful visuals.
The title of the film refers to the tarot card of the same name, where “Knight” is the face card, similar to a Jack, Queen, or King, and “Cups” is the suit, roughly equating with the traditional suit, Hearts.
