The Independent has a short piece on the reclusive Terrence Malick.
Michele Morette, his late ex-wife of 13 years, revealed that while they were together she wasn’t allowed into his office, and that he would rather buy her a copy of a book than lend her his own. He also liked to leave his books and cassettes face-down, so people couldn’t see what he was reading or listening to.
Favorite Malick line, from Linda (Linda Manz) in Days of Heaven: “Nobody’s perfect. There was never a perfect person around. You just have half-angel and half-devil in you.”
