    Indescribable.

    My first Terrence Malick film. I'm struggling to find words for how I feel about this film after one viewing. Truly unlike anything I've ever seen before.

    Beautiful film. Thought provoking and incredibly moving. Not for everyone.

    Guys, how do you like this?
    I tried to watch it 2 years ago, but I deleted the movie after 30 minutes. Now, I managed to watch it. However, I still have the same opinion as before. The Tree of Life is a pointless movie. It has no plot and it is kinda weird. The visuals are marvelous, and the acting is okay, but everything else is bad in my opinion.
    Can you please tell me why you love this movie and have given it a 5 star rating?

    The only reason this gets a 3 star review from me is because of it's sheer scope and ambition. The Tree of Life is one of the few films that I can say I was impressed how intellectual it is. However, I was not very entertained nor was I was blown away and Terrence Malick's camera work came off more distracting than beautiful at times. I'm glad films like this are made, but I've yet to be truly in awe of a film like this. Maybe one day.

    Pretty screensavers. Boring and pretentious film

    Like being wired directly into Malick's frontal lobes. Visually stunning and intermittently powerful (Jack's father confiding in him his doubts as to whether he's been a good father or not is a stunning scene) but almost drowning in its' own sense of the epic.

    Now, I'm not going to attempt to explain this film. It should be up to you to discover your own interpretation of the film. The reason why I state this is because The Tree of Life is a very personal and subjective film; I've seen it 26 times at the time of writing this review and in each viewing I learn something new about this film. It's very dear to me. For those of you who aren't familiar with my…

    2nd viewing. Felt much more spiritual this time, though it's still very interesting to me that it's a view that accepts the scientific explanations of the beginning and end of Earth. In any case, the movie's quest for "grace" has always been what I love about it the most. Although directly it's about understanding and accepting that a possible higher power must inflict pain and suffering upon its subjects, for me it's more about how people naturally struggle against that…

    A visual feast.
    I'm still not even 100% sure I enjoyed the film - however it really has stuck with me. As the days pass since I saw it, it only elevates in my perceptions and continues to twist and warp for the better from my original opinion. For me Jessica Chastain was magical, all of the cinematography and motifs enveloping her character were extremely well crafted and breath taking, further proving that Malick is a master of telling stories…

    Epic has become an annoyingly time-worn word and is regularly misused to describe just about anything. Yet when describing this film, I can't avoid the word, due to the sheer scope and vision. With Malick, I knew I was getting a visual feast at the very least, but I wasn't quite prepared for the cathartic and philosophical compassion of The Tree Of Life, being simultaneously intimate and cosmic, showing both a veridity of the human bond of love in a…

    My third viewing, and it is still the best film I've ever seen.

    The "afterlife" sequence late in the film worked better for me this time than previously. I still resist calling it an "afterlife" sequence, but I have to admit that there is some justification: imagery of dead bodies, shrouds, a ladder to heaven, a camera constantly advancing toward the sun. I'd like to see it as a kind of "inscape" of the mother's soul: her memory, her love,…
