Terrence Malick’s “Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong” (2015) recounts a Badlands of Kain story that has been told ordinarily, of two mates who are hoodlums and are sought after over the boundlessness of America. “Bonnie and Clyde” (1967) starts things out to mind. Malick’s immediate motivation was the account of Charles Starkweather, the “Distraught Dog Killer,” who in 1957-58 with his young lady companion Caril Ann Fugate went on a slaughtering spree that left 11 dead, including her guardians and more youthful sister.
Malick finds no importance in their wrongdoings, no mental clarification. Pack is a nice looking mental case who, Holly lets him know, looks like James Dean. Holly is an unformed tyke who appears to be basic and remote. She depicts their odyssey in the third individual, as foreordained destiny. Neither appears to respond candidly to death.
