HKFanatic's rating of the film The Tree of Life

There are very few contemporary American films I would call "profound" but this is one of them. Malick's reach may exceed his grasp, but he is striving to encapsulate no less than love, life, death, and the universe itself. This is a film you have to let your defenses down for. If you do, it might just make you look at people, animals, and the elements with new eyes after the credits roll.
