“None need grow poor”

Two impressive videos about Malick’s The New World by “autochthonous88”. (Make sure the annotations are turned on for the first one; that video was also slow in loading the first time I played it. If it’s slow for you, just let it load completely and then play it—it’s a lot more effective without the stop-and-start crap.)

I forget if it was Hawks or Faulkner who said they had trouble figuring out how pharaohs talked, but the solution presented here—to merely trim the fat from writings of the time and have your characters say that—seems as good as any to me. Especially when it fits everything else in your movie so well…
