It's kind of a bummer to see so many dismissing Terrence Malick's upcoming "To the Wonder" with jokes about shots of wheat fields and sighs over the trademark camerawork he employs with Emmanuel Lubezski. But it speaks to the film itself, which is free from cynicism, and a deeply earnest and soulful look at love and loss, which some may have let their guard down to embrace.

If you weren't one of those who saw the film in Venice or Toronto this year, you've likely seen very little of Terrence Malick's "To The Wonder," the director's uncharacteristically fast-in-arriving follow-up to his wildly acclaimed "The Tree Of Life." Two images from the film have been released, but those who've been avoiding the reviews might not yet have much of an idea of what to expect.

Anyone who says that actors are an afterthought in a Terrence Malick film are doing a serious injustice to the director and his work. It would be somewhat surprising to find A-listers queueing up to work with the filmmaker if he wasn't someone who worked well with his performers, and one doesn't have to think very hard to come up with memorable turns in his pictures -- Sissy Spacek in "Badlands," Richard Gere in "Days Of Heaven," Jim Caviezel in "The Thin Red Line," Q'orianka Kilcher in "The New World," Hunter McCracken in "The Tree Of Life" -- even if the landscape and imagery is just as important.

Like the waves that lap the beach by the Palazzo del Cinema in Venice, Brian De Palma is reassuringly steadfast. Over the years his Movie Brat brethren Scorsese and Spielberg have adapted their respective styles to align with evolving audience tastes and advancing technology, embracing 3D and motion capture with their most recent works. Meanwhile, Terrence Malick, the other New Hollywood veteran competing for this year’s Golden Lion, experiments in increasingly radical filmmaking syntax with each passing movie. But De Palma is dogged: he continues to explore themes and techniques that have obsessed him since his ‘70s/’80s salad days of “Carrie” and “Body Double."

For a man not known for being prolific, an eighteen-month gap between Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life” (the filmmaker’s first film in five years) and his latest, “To the Wonder” (only his sixth in forty years) isn’t just unprecedented, it’s positively mind-boggling, especially given that the director is currently shooting a pair of films, “Knight of Cups” and another untitled film starring Ryan Gosling, back to back.

While this writer offended some by daring to suggest the first trailer for Brian De Palma's "Passion" maybe wasn't so hot, the bottom line is, put Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace together in a movie and have them square off, and we'll be there. Directed by Brian De Palma? Doubly so. "Passion" is certainly one of the more intriguing offerings on the fest circuit this fall, and now a few more images have dropped to tempt you.

Depending on which side of the fence you're on, Brian De Palma hasn't made a good movie since the '90s, or he hasn't lost his touch. For everyone who dislikes a certain film, particularly recent pictures like "Femme Fatale" or "The Black Dahlia," there are just as many ready to find the merit and pleasures in the work. And judging by the first trailer for "Passion," that will probably be the case here.

The last major additions to this year's Toronto International Film Festival have been unveiled, and unsurprisingly, along with the new world premieres, there's several films from the Venice line-up, which kicks off the week before. Along with the already announced "The Master" and "To The Wonder," Torontoites will also get to see Brian DePalma's "Passion" and Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers," both of which are set to bow on the Lido the week before.

So, will Brian De Palma's "Passion" be a long awaited return to form or another ambitious disappointment? Well, we'll still have to wait and see, but we'd be lying if we said that the images released thus far haven't been making us excited. And now you can add one more to the pile.
