  • Like its predecessors (Badlands, Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line and The New World), Tree delivers truths that don't go down easy. No one with a genuine interest in the potential of film would think of missing it. show more

  • At times trying and perplexing, but it also contains some of the most psychologically insightful and ecstatic filmmaking imaginable. show more

  • Daring in concept, occasionally daffy in execution and ultimately unforgettable, Mr. Malick's film offers a heartfelt answer to the question of where we humans belong - with each other, on this planet, bound by love. show more

    Truly bizarre! I read thhe precis which tells me the plot! But I sure didn\'t see all that in the movie! Academt Award nominee?? You\'ve GOT to be kidding! Yes, beautiful cinematograpghy! But best picture????? NO!!!!!! No acting at all, 2 shots of Sean Penn with no dialogue, and very, very little dialogue throughout the movie!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wierd, wierd! This did not evoke anything in me except wonder - wondering why the heck it was made!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! zero starts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
