      Gumble’s film was a masterpiece.

      Malick needs to quit directing and become a full-time cinematographer. That’s where his real talent lies. He could take a disciplined script and make something beautiful out of it.

      I don’t think Malick is the one to credit. In fact his cinematographer is Emmanuel Lubezki, who won three Oscars in a row for Gravity, Birdman and The Revenant.
