As I watched this film, I felt sadness at first for the things these boys had to endure. Then, as things just kept getting worse, the sadness was overshadowed by anger. Then, as the tragedy escalated, the anger was amplified by an infinite tower of hatred. It was not easy to watch.
It's intresting this film. At first it seems so black and white, but all these people are more complicated than that.
I believe I just watched an epic battle between good and evil, and everybody lost.
I am not capable of translating the language of emotion and poetry of Tree of Life into words. I am not a poet, but I'll try anyhow. The film was a towering monument of humility that transcends all genres of film. While watching this film I felt the full gamut of emotion. Its subject is life itself. I watched it a second time the very next day. It is beautiful beyond description. It is both one of the most joyful…
I delayed watching this for a year or so because the description on Netflix was "meh." But, last night I put it on as I was eating my dinner. WOW, it surprised me. This film was a delight. The only other movie I can think of that sort of feels like this one is Amelie. This was MUCH better than I had expected it to be. It was overall a very very good film. I am undecided if this film is a "perfect" film or if it's just a "damn good" film, so for now I'll give 4.5 stars.
