The directorial debute of Terrance Malik is surprisingly very cut-and-dried. The free and reckless nature of Mit, the main character, isn't really complimented too well by the conventions the film follows. Despite these technical overlooks, the messages are genuinely compelling. The more I think about how the intense situation of the two leads is treated by not just them, but all characters, becomes increasingly eerie upon reflection. This is a film everyone should see in my opinion, but it won't really matter if you don't.
EDIT: So, like, maybe 20 seconds after publishing this review, some of the other abstract filmmaking techniques came to mind. This blend of convention and nonconvention might actually reflect the carelessness of surrounding the situation, and better explains the lack of reflection on the amazing character that is Mit. So in spite of this, I'm gonna bump my score up a bit.
