Recensies

I remember the day I walked into the cinema, the anticipation I felt and the expectations we all held. They were met and almost instantly surpassed. The Tree of Life was, and still is, for me and for many others, one of the great, shattering events in the cinema. And seven years later, it has only become more powerful.

The Tree of Life was a pivotal progression for the filmmaker; it marked the point where the basis for his language had been established and he was now able to add depth to it, to add additional meaning based on the unique codes he had already crafted.

  • El Biffo's rating of the film The Tree of Life

    Midwestern American spirituality. The grand prize at Cannes? I think those judges did it just to irritate Lars von Trier, whose competing film was so much better, but they didn't like his hitler jokes at a press conference. Give the guy a break, he's a brilliant wacko. Malick is a hayseed.

  • tidal waif's rating of the film The Tree of Life

    for all the love i have for national geographic and nasa photography, i don't think that is enough to make a good film. for the fans of those two, and, additionally,of phillips, kodak, dove, orange, etc. commercials aficionados, this is a must. plus, i remember paternal rigidity translating in special addressing formulas was deemed"domestic fascism" in other films, but this flic escaped the labeling.

  • Jason's rating of the film The Tree of Life

    Christ almighty have I ever found myself of several minds and all over the map re: Malick this last decade. I have arrived at a place of surrender. It helps that I have come to realize that my intellectual and aesthetic values were always implicitly spiritual ones. I just watched the new three-hour-eight-minute cut of THE TREE OF LIFE. Wow. So, it's all about love and fear. The movie, sure, but, really, ALL OF IT.

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film The Tree of Life

    **1/2. Religious movie about Grace or the search for God in Nature. From the Big Bang (No Eden, just Dinosaurs) to the End of Time. In the middle, a family. Texas, in the 60's. 'Days of Heaven' deserved the Palme d'Or. This one, clearly not. Already forgotten,I'm afraid.

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The Tree of Life

    I don't think it's striving to make a profound statement, just a personal one. What we have is Malick wandering through scenes of his own childhood. A first person reflection, like Tarkovsky's Mirror , where the loss of his two brothers & his own physical & spiritual disconnection from past & present propels the whole thing. Malick finds a new cinematic language in the combination of sound & image. A miraculous work.

  • FilmEdie's rating of the film The Tree of Life

    Like sitting down to a big, pretty episode of something David Attenborough, but with the family in front of you stage-whispering their middle-class melodrama while you’re trying to watch. Scripting like a grade 8 poetry assignment. Also, random dinosaurs? Tried to get through this with Grace, but my Nature sure rolled its eyes a lot at the self-indulgent brooding & ultra-obvious symbolism. So very much not my thing.

  • Skinnedteen's rating of the film The Tree of Life

    It is a strange film and I guess people expected more plot development given the fact that it is released in mainstream theaters with renowned actors. Perhaps Malick wants us to contemplate and comprehend its visual experience. Personally, it is a visually poetic film. A profound and spiritual examination of human existence.

  • ig_____or's rating of the film The Tree of Life

    Ok, so I have seen this movie like 5 times now. What I admire the most about "The Tree of Life" is its shear ambition. What sort of movie sets up to tell the story of all human life? And succeeds (in my view) in doing so? From the Big Bang to our Death: the cinematography, soundtrack, storyline and actors make this masterpiece something that transcends the limits of storytelling and moviemaking. Malick is legendary!
