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)

"January 9th Directed by: Terrence Malick I've seen The Tree of Life several times. What I watched this time was the new Criterion Collection extended version. They said it was going to be like watching an entirely new movie and I should have believed them, because I think the amount of footage that is in both versions makes up less than 25% of the runtime. I feel this version is a big step down from the original. There's so much more footage of the human characters that it completely outweighs"

Elokuvapäiväkirja 2018 (216 movies items)

"30.6 Koko maailman palvoma jumalelokuva jätti itselleni erittäin pahan maun suuhun. Tekemällä tehty, paatoksellinen ja aavistuksen siirappinen kertomus sirpaleisesta texasilaisperheestä, johon on miltei väkisin ängetty mukaan syvällistä kuvastoa elämän tarkoituksesta. Kuvien henkeäsalpaava runollisuus ja esteettisyys on joka tapauksessa kaunista katsella ja kuunnella, mutta tuntuu jotenkin irralliselta kokonaisuudelta. O'Brienin perheen ilon ja surun hetkiä en voinut ottaa millää"
