The Tree of Life


Dir. Terrence Malick. 2011, 139 mins. 35mm. With Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, Jessica Chastain, Hunter McCracken. One of the major movie events of recent years, this mammoth work of cinematic poetry is Malick’s personal vision of a young boy’s coming-of-age in suburban 1950s Texas. It is also a deeply philosophical take on life, death, and the whole shebang, featuring an astonishing depiction of the creation of the world, that must be experienced on the big screen.
