Press shy, mercurial and often leaving his actors a bit baffled (just ask Ben Affleck, Richard Gere or Christopher Plummer), it's often hard to get a read on just who Terrence Malick is. Eccentric genius? Reclusive philosopher? Well, while that is open for speculation, the oddball facts about Malick are a bit more fun to toss around, such as his apparent love for "Zoolander." What else does he like? Dancing.

Thanks to the wonder (ha!) of the interwebs, a brief video has surfaced of Malick doing some country western dancing just like regular people. That's right, the Rhodes Scholar and Harvard philosophy major likes to unwind in your local country dive bar, getting down and dancing. We'll buy you a pitcher any time, Terry. Watch below.

    wow, the man just enjoys his privacy. Leave him alone and shame on the person who filmed this without him knowing.

    He looks almost as embarassed as on the TMZ video with Benicio el Toro! It's like he lost a bet and had to dance... Or he's just forcing himself to do normal thing like everybody but it doesn't look very natural...

    A few seconds after the video stopped Malick started doing the truffle shuffle.

    Sorry, I was preoccupied with the girl in the black dress. Take my word for it, learn how to dance, and go to country western bars. My Lord.

    I'm creeped out and a little disappointed this was posted here.

  • shocking | November 18, 2012 10:59 PM

    shocking. LOL. If u only knew...

    I guess you just politely ignored the fact that most of our posts this weekend were from the Rome Film Festival.....

    You really think this site has any standards? They post endless Star Wars rumors after making fun of people who post Star Wars rumors, not to mention an unfiltered stream on some of the worst-looking films including Movie 43 and House at the End of the Street (over a DOZEN articles). You should not be surprised, but it's shocking Indiewire would let them into their network.

    At least it's good country music. Not that Taylor Swift, the Band Perry, Rascal Flatts bullshit.

  • d | November 18, 2012 4:37 PMReply

    Is this a paparazzi site now?

  • No | November 18, 2012 3:55 PMReply

    Must have been a slow news weekend: Wow. Terence Malick "dances," -- if you can call it that.

  • MusaJarJar | November 18, 2012 7:14 PM

    You wrote this after you got your anus bleached, right? Just checkin...

  • Marko | November 18, 2012 4:36 PM

    Well they need something to counterbalance all the Star Wars rumors.
