"Cinema - New 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 this film just genuinely floored me. I'm not a man of faith, at all, but there's something about this film which "

"The Tree of Live is a 139 minute film, and by my estimation I watched 110 minutes of it. I did not show up to the theater late, so I'm sure you can use your deductive skills from there. But wait! I should explain because I don't want you to think that I stormed out of the theater huffing and puffing and then verbally assaulted the ticket clerk with obscene cries about Malick's pretentious bullshit film as I demanded a refund. That's not how it went down. Here's the real story: 1. I really h"

July 2011 List (14 movies items)

"July 3rd' 2011 An impressionistic story of a Texas family in the 1950s, the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith. In my opinion the movie disappointed lots of people and was not much to the expectations of many. I watched the movie in Pathé Tuschinski, Rembrandtplein, Amsterdam C"

“Jack is the eldest son of Mr. O 'Brien (Brad Pitt) and his wife (Jessica Chastain), struggles to lead the younger brother and win the sympathy of his father, as he looks to the younger son to manage everything as he denied to do family . At the same time, his mother feeds honest and constant love for both his family and for the very joy of life, while his father tries to teach him that "good passed for suckers" and how should Being tough to survive, what else, the hard way. The small and crushed between two people with a different approach to life, will develop over the years on his personality and worldview, but while watching the innocence to fade, along with the leaves of the tree. Some years later, an adult now (the Sean Penn appears little in the movie and greatest titles ...), turns ” read more

Film Journal 2011 (88 movies items)

" June 19th (Cinema) - With each film Terrence Malick pushes the boundaries of narrative film making and The Tree of Life continues this trend. It is a project of pure ambition and earnestness and like anything made of that substance it has its areas where it falls short. The most glaring is the uneven narrative that plagues it at times. Watching it you will be confused and frustrated, but like any piece of art you will get out of the experience what you put in to the experience. Any of the "

"It really breaks my heart not to be able to recommend The Tree of Life. In a lot of ways, this movie is cinematic magic. It's one hell of a visual spectacle... and it's precisely because it's so visually impressive that the experience of sitting through it isn't insufferable. If the only problem were the film's poorly structured plot, I'd still give this a pass, but there's an additional, severe flaw: the script is ludicrous. The little dialogue there is in the film is often atrocious. My r"

"Day 15 - A character who I can relate to the most note : I definitely can relate to Jack, portrayed by Hunter McCracken. Like him, my folks were arguing all the time and I felt miserable about it all my childhood. Like him, my small brother used to be my best friend and like him, in spite of this beautiful relationship, I used to really beat him up on a daily basis because , I guess, I was rather messed up inside. Anyway, while watching this flick, I got really emotional because of the similari"

" Note : Many people won't get this movie and will loathe it. It is definitely the least accessible movie directed by Mallick and I'm not sure I did get half of it but it doesn't matter. I touched me very deeply and many times, I thought I was watching myself when the father was messing up his familly or when the older boy was getting messed up. If you're looking for some deep and meaningfull movie, you should definitely have a look to this one. "

A very good movie

“I have been waiting to see this movie for maybe 2 years and I finally saw it! 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 whole thing but then Mallick came again and again with some amazing sequences (beautifully shot with some awesome music), and then you were back again completely fascinated by the moving pictures in front of you. I know, this review sounds rather cryptical but so is this movie. Watching this movie is like going to a museum and staring at a masterpiece. Nothing is explained to you but you get some emotional reaction to” read more

"As a fan of Brad Pitt, I'd like to see this. However, Terrence Malick hasn't made a single film I've had a desire to see, and the trailer for this one looks somewhat interesting but not very impressive. So I may wait for reviews on it or else DVD. Right now it's on my "wait for Netflix to watch it" list."
