    I had a dream last night that I was watching a 10 hour long movie by terrence malick and my friend handed me a baby praying mantis and terrence malick was there and I was like “yo look at this isn’t this praying mantis more interesting and important than every movie you’ve ever made?” and he was like “omg it is, yeah” and then we walked out of the theater and bought a pepperoni pizza that just had one gigantic…

    This is one of my favorite films. I've seen it four times, but I'm scared to even attempt to my thoughts/feelings into words. Seeing it in theaters was an experience, but like a great book I get something new from it every time I watch it. Malick at his most Malick-y. visceral. beautiful. if nothing else, ambitious.

    While many accuse Terrence Malik's The Tree of Life of being incoherent, discombobulated, and pretentious, not a single person can deny a film like this doesn't come around very often. It's muted, indescribably strange, visceral, visually arresting, and totally mesmerizing from start to finish. To some it feels meandering, but closer examination reveals that there is so much more going on beneath the surface, containing subtle pieces of dialogue intermixed with poetic imagery that somehow manages its own story while…

    I've seen this on DVD three times.
    I have now seen this on Blu-Ray.
    Blu-Ray is great.
    This movie is even better now.

    Beautiful. It's amazing how much of a story can be told without dialogue.

    I don't know if it was because I saw it on DVD but I couldn't properly hear most of the voice overs.

    I have to say though that I didn't really like the camera movements at the beginning and the cutting around the mother and father. After that beginning bit I thought the shots of the Universe and landscapes went on a bit long (As amazing as…

    Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life is an amazing visual and aural experience that completely blew me away on the second watch. A true masterpiece of expressionism and visual poetry. Terrence Malick is truly a gifted and talented director, and I am looking forward to his future films. Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain also give spectacular performances.

    This is…

    I know that this film has passionate fans, but now I've seen it, I cannot claim to be one of them. I desperately wanted to love this film but, whilst I admire its ambition and visual flair, it left me more frustrated than enamoured.

    Maybe I'm just being stupid, maybe I don't "get it"; I just found that Malick's creation buckled under the weight of its own ambition and poetry, maintaining its visual beauty throughout but losing its grip on…

    It will yield unique reactions from different filmgoers, but if you can get lost in the message and the visuals, you'll understand why some (myself included) consider "The Tree of Life" one of the most original, masterful pieces of art ever created.
