Well. What can you say? After I saw this film I needed some time to let it sink in. You can't deny that this is a very ambitious film from Terrence Malick. He's gone crazy, and by doing so he has created a film about life, creation, destruction, mercy and by how yo... read more

A very good movie

I have been waiting to see this movie for maybe 2 years and I definitely had some big expectations. Honestly, I can't say it was as good as I expected but it was still a very good picture. Basically, it starts with an awe inspiring introduction which I cannot describe and then the movie went very theological and metaphysical. I guess that since I'm not that smart, I was kind of losing track of the... read more

To preface this is the year that I really got into Malick. Since January I've seen Badlands, Days of Heaven, A New World and The Thin Red Line and adored them all (The Thin Red Line, less that the others) largely because the trailer for The Tree of Life excited me so.



Usually I'm quite happy to waffle on about a movie and drop stupid analysis like no ones business, but ... read more

Description: From Terrence Malick, the acclaimed director of such classic films as Badlands, Days of Heaven and The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life is the impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 1950's. The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father (Brad Pitt). Jack (played as an adult by Sean Penn) finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith. Through Malick's signature imagery, we see how ... (more)

“REVIEW IN SPANISH.

Esta es una de esas películas experimentales y extrañas que dividen al público por lo poco convencionales que son, por un lado recibiendo alabanzas y por otro tiraderas de mierda (esto muy notable si comparamos la nota que tiene el filme en metacritic con la que le dan los usuarios de IMDb), pero por mi parte, me encuentro totalmente de acuerdo con el lado que alaba el filme, es una película diferente y poco convencional en su narrativa y forma de presentarse, da varios saltos de tiempo pequeños contando diferentes anécdotas y mostrando muchas escenas sobre el universo como su creación o su fin, pero este filme diferente con un propósito y no es solo un montón de mierda random, todo lo que meten u ocurre en el filme tiene una coherencia y sentido, y el” read more

"27.5. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu, ei muutoksia. Se on just ja just, aivan siinä ja siinä, ettei hajoa omaan erinomaisuuteensa. Eri mielentilassa tällainen puhdas ja silkka nerous luultavasti menisi viheltäen yli. 2000-lukulainen vastine Peilille 2001: Avaruusseikkailun (megalo)maanisilla ihmiskunnan synty- sekä olemassaolokysymyksillä.

"27 May. Stunning, beautiful and quite unexplainable, Terrence Malick wields a magic wand for creating visual magnificence. Every frame in the movie is a work of art, forget that the brain needs time to comprehend, you'll get to that later, the story is not made that way, it is crafted to allure the senses, which is a step forward in filmmaking.

JPL posted a review 6 months ago

“[English Version]

The Tree of Life is an American experimental drama film written and directed by Terrence Malick. The movie narrates the evolution of Jack, a child who lives with his mother (Jessica Chastain), who embodies love and kindness, while his father (Brad Pitt), who represents severity, is in charge of teaching him to face A hostile world. Sean Penn plays Jack as an adult. On the other hand, it is also the history of the Universe from its origins.

Experimental cinema is divided into two types: First, it's the type of experimental cinema which is abstract without a message or even a clear point (example Gus Van Sant's Gerry or Goodbye To Language), and there is this part which finds a way to be abstract and have a message, The Tree of Life belongs in the sec” read more

"A beautiful reflection about life, death, memories,and what it all means in the infinite existence of the universe. BUT it's too slow paced and conteplative for me. Didn't like "The thin red line", and could't enjoy this much more. Maybe Terrence Malick just isn't for me."
