A sublime film from beginning to end as Terrance Malick tries to make some sense of human life. Life is a most edifying experience and well chosen by the Academy as Best Film of the year. Brad Pitt stars in a role tailor made for him. The perfect Jessica Chastain was in six movies in her first year and nominated for The Help. If you didn't like or appreciate this beautiful work of art, you could possibly have problems with your cognitive skills! Check into that... don't get left behind!

This is one of those films that, like the old adage says, you either love or you hate. I loved it. I'm actually surprised how much I loved it given the lack of dialogue or story structure. This film reminded me of excerpts of 2001: A Space Odyssey and the old home movies of a middle class American family mixed together. Brad Pitt does the lion's share of the talking as the family patriarch, a proud, angry, sometimes volatile man who cares for his family but is haunted by resentment and disappointment. It is a splendid performance by Pitt who for all intents and purposes carries the entire movie. However, it is when the film focuses on the visual that it truly impresses. Not since 2001 has space been beautifully captured, nor has the many splendors of earth and ocean been so brightly displayed. Director Terrence Malick has long been regarded as a reclusive genius, the closest thing to Kubrick that still exists, well this confirms it once and for all. The Tree of Life is a stunning achievement, proof of what great things the art of cinema is capable of when in the hands of truly impassioned artists.

ATTENTION: This review reveals content of the movie.
Excellent cinematography but this is not enough to carry a film without plot. Images are beautiful until dinosaurs start to pop up. Then it becomes silly. To link a very ordinary coming-of-age story to the origins of the universe is ridiculous. Despite its pretentious ambitions, this film is eye candy and nothing more.

It is a movie that shows the beauty in the nature and inside of people. Through the eyes of a child, we are amazed and worried about his relationship with his father and with others. The cinematography is well planned and the music mixes well with the scenes. The cast is well distributed and the choreography is amazing.

The Tree of Life was really weird, it hardly had any talking going around, and I didn't get the story at all, and I'm not surprised with anybody else in the world thinking it's boring and weird too!
