    The visuals look good like it came straight from your dreams including the nonsensical order the film has. Might require some re-viewings to make some sense of the events of the film.

    A beautiful, expansive film, though at times some of the mysterious imagery becomes somewhat strained.

    Dull, pretentious, and boring. But that doesn't mean its not beautiful.

    My favorite film since 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, and definitely the most ambitious and visually stunning film since then.
    No film reaches me and connects me more deeply with my own experiences than this film.

    3 stars solely for the beautiful and mesmerizing cinematography, the other 1/2 star for its attempt at telling, what could have been a really great story. If the second half of the film wasn't filled with just kids running around their yard and Brad Pitt losing it out of nowhere, The Tree of Life could have been great.
    Other films with the same premise revolving around the questioning of faith and God, such as Life of Pi and Amadeus, were able to capture both trials of faith with an outstanding original script, so it can be done.

    In 1888 Roundhay Garden Scene was created - this is considered by many to be the first celluloid film.

    Since then, cinema has been slowly inching its way to the creation of The Tree of Life. First The Trip to the Moon, then The Passion of Joan of Arc, then Citizen Kane, then 2001: A Space Odyssey, then The Mirror and now 123 years later The Tree of Life.

    There is so much I want to say about the Tree…

    There is no denying that this film is visually impressive, the performances are also very good, especially from the younger cast members as they portray a convincing display of adolescence and learning about life from their parents, who seem to share different outlooks on the world. My main issue with this film is that it is quite boring, also takes itself a little too seriously, and dare I say, pretentious. This is my second Terence Malick film (Badlands being the…

    Was just listening to the soundtrack and looking at some stills and felt I needed to say how great this film is. So ethereal and beautiful, it takes you on a captivating journey.

    My Brain is scrambled egg now, talk to you later.... I mean review later.

    I'm lost for words, Emmanuel Lubezki cinematography is just so captivating and vibrant. The unusuall angles, the constantly moving shots, the wides in all their atmospheric glory. The use of visual story telling is definitely a high point in this film, I recommend watching it for that alone. It's just pure excellence.
    Lubezki has become one of my Cinematographer alongside the great Roger Deakins. He just…

    The Tree of Life - 4/4

    Here I was not knowing that one of the most visionary films of all time was created within the last 5 years.

    The Tree of Life is a bold, ambitious film that is filled to the brim with, as Ebert puts it: "[a] fierce evocation of human feeling."

    Structured similarly to 2001 in both ambition and in form, in which it begins and bookends on a more abstract and poetic form of storytelling. In…

    Malick is great.

    There is nothing wrong with this movie. Everything is right. I don't know if its possible for Malick to top this. One of the greatest movies in recent cinema. Its very beautiful (just like any Malick movie) and very moving. Its hard to describe what makes this movie so good, but I would recommend you see it.
