Terrence Malick teases us again with “Song to Song”

I think of American auteur Terrence Malick as Lucy, holding that football in front of Charlie Brown (us). Over and over again. Since the onanistic and over-rated “Tree of Life,” I’ve given up on him. Even “Thin Red Line,” which I will check in on any time I see it on cable, only holds the interest for so long. Then he wanders off pointing the camera at leaves or insects or what not.

“Song to Song,” set in the middle of Austin’s music/festival scene, attracted top drawer talent — Gosling, Fassbender, Mara, Portman — and was filmed years ago. YEARS.

Anyway, the trailer is retro and promising and oblique and I don’t know…Limited release, March 17.
