    This is the fourth time I’ve watched this film. Nowadays this is to film-savvy fans what every Marvel movie was to casual moviegoers. Before sitting, I felt I was done with Terrence Malick. His style rubs me with great effect in the right and wrong ways. He’s a filmmaker with great visual eyes and any shot of his movies blooms so much life. But he can be very ponderous, to the point that they can become preachy, self-important and tedious.…

    “There are two paths in this world; the way of nature and the way of grace. You have to choose which one you’ll take.” This is the bare bones theme of Terrence Malick’s highly anticipated Tree of Life, the film which not only explores these two paths, but is also a blend of coming-of-age drama, experimental film, and high-minded epic. The film’s characters are equipped with a sense of religious certainty, which results in intense moral musings. They all speak…

    With time, I might be able to write a longer, more definitive and coherent review. However, suffice it to say I was moved by this film, and that is the very heart of what cinema is supposed to be.

    The Tree of Life is a masterpiece and Terrence Malick is a god. What an intriguing and stimulating film. Between the memory induced nostalgia, being a daddy, and having lost a sibling this film really delivered and gave me a great deal to feel and think about.

    I've changed my mind. It's brilliant.

    Not that I hated the film in the past, but I gave it four stars and said that some of it didn't work.

    The dinosaur section, showing the birth of morality, and the beautiful visuals of the creation is what I said wasn't a good thing. However, I've grown to love it.

    The film, from the first few minutes, is definitely about nature and grace. Perhaps those two aspects going against each other. Nature…

    I decided to rewatch this little baby blu as I haven't seen it since Cameraimage 2011. Like most films that aren't plot driven, it benefits from a rewatch with that in mind. This is the most accurate representation of memory I have ever seen. Not all of the images resonate, but the ones that do, land hard. I also saw cameos from Barton Springs pool and Hamilton Pool Reserve that I visited on my USA road trip last year (Though when I visited Hamilton Pool it didn't look quite so idyllic as a heavy rain the night before had left it full of cow shit. Shame)

    Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life is a true cinematic rarity, relying heavily on aural and visual complexity and ignoring a linear narrative to create a piece that immerses the viewer so entirely in the filmic world there’s no escaping it. From the dinosaur cameo to the fragmented narrative, this family drama is a weaves in and out of Jack O’Brien’s life from an existential crisis in a modern world to his coming of age in small town Texas to a…
