Cannes 2011: Don’t Let the “Boos” Fool You. Watch Two Stunning Clips from ‘The Tree of Life’

When Terrence Malick released The New World, critics were initially divided, but by the end of the decade, it made everyone’s list of “Ten Best Films” of the past ten years. Also Cannes is a strange place and notorious for booing great movies by gifted directors (dating back at least to L’Avventura in 1960), while applauding awful films by hacks such as Clerks 2 by Kevin Smith. So it’s not much of a shock to learn that Malick’s new film, The Tree of Life, was booed at its Monday morning premiere at the Cannes film festival. Well in the latest clip, you can see why Todd McCarthy gave both the picture and star/producer Brad Pitt a raving review: “Brad Pitt gives one of his finest performances in Terrence Malick’s drama about the beginnings of life on Earth and the travails of a 1950s Texas family, writes Todd McCarthy.

Watch the clip below. Enjoy!

    Hacks like Kevin Smith?? Sure Clerks 2 may not be a best picture winning movie but to call it awful an to call Kevin Smith a hack is completely asinine. What movies have you made that have been successful? Typical film critic hack to judge other people’s art when they themselves are nothing more than some shmuck writing on an Internet blog. It’s a gross-out comedy not The Shawshank Redemption, Godfather or anything that would be on the top 250 movies of all time list. So on behalf of Kevin Smith I’d like to say “fuck you”. Now go sit on your couch in your studio apartment and watch some stupid foreign film in subtitles while you beat off with your tears as lube.
