Terrence Malick Is Becoming a Bit of a Camera Whore

As longtime readers of The Projector -- we say "longtime" like we've been around for decades rather than, you know, a month or so -- know, every time we refer to legendary (and auk-like) filmmaker Terrence Malick, we use a picture of veteran actress Wendy Malick. This is because we find this funny, for some reason, but it is also because you can't find any pictures of Terrence Malick on WireImage or Getty Images, the photo services we use here at Yahoo!. Seriously, not a single shot shows up. That might change soon, though.

For decades, just this dopey shot of Malick existed on the Internet. But now that the guy is out making movies again, he's popping up everywhere. They snapped a photo of him as he sneaked into Cannes for "The Tree of Life" and then sneaked back out again, and just this weekend, he showed up at the Austin City Limits festival. They got him there, too, though he was more conspicuous this time, as "more conspicuous" as something can be than a Cannes premiere.

So, there he is, pointing his camera at Christian Bale, who we didn't even know was doing a Malick movie. We support Malick's decision to return to the hat.
