Terrence Malick Announces 35,000 Slide PowerPoint Presentation on the “Nature of Man”
Los Angeles, Calif — Terrence Malick, director of “The Thin Red Line” and more recently, “Tree of Life”, announced a 35,000 slide powerpoint meant to define and explain humankind’s role in the universe.
“While many praised Tree of Life for it’s grand scale, I personally feel that there are many areas I could expand upon.”
Malick said that he chose to experiment with the PowerPoint form because it would allow him the freedom to jump across topics incoherently without having to worry about audience expectations of a traditional narrative.
“While it was a critical success, many people complained about Tree of Life’s nonlinear structure. Even Sean Penn wasn’t entirely sure why his character was in the movie.”
Not to be outdone, Lar Von Trier has announced a new film about the universally disliked Microsoft Word Paperclip’s crisis of faith in the face of impending deletion.
