Terrence Malick is a director with no fear of the high-flown. His yearning meditations on love and transcendence flirt with portentousness, yet they are so achingly felt and beautifully made you can't help wanting to like them.

Television: I thought 'The Trip' was sublimely brilliant; beautiful and funny at every turn. Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, continuing their comedic sparring from Michael Winterbottom's 'A Cock and Bull Story', was subtle yet silly British mid-life-crisis comedy at its best.

Dustin Hoffman did not have to think too long or too hard when he was offered the chance to direct his first film, according to Jane Wright, the managing director of BBC Films, which will make Quartet, the actor's debut from behind the camera lens. A British venture starring Dame Maggie Smith, Albert Finney and Tom Courtenay as ageing opera singers, Hoffman reportedly accepted the challenge with considerable excitement. He had made known his desire to venture into directing, said Ms Wright, adding: "He's got access to incredible amounts of material. This film is the one he really wanted to do". The 72-year-old was, according to BBC Films, "slightly in awe of the cast". It seems beyond doubt that they will be in awe of their director.
