Terrence Malick / The Tree of Life, pt. 2


It’s been a couple of weeks since we first reviewed director Terrence Malick’s latest, the Palme d’Or-winning The Tree of Life, and since then it has rolled out to most decent cities, bringing with it a lively discussion about the film’s merits. We thought it would be fun to discuss it again, this time with the help of returning guest Olivier Cruerer. While we’re at it, we also get to talking about Malick’s two other post-comeback films, 1999’s The Thin Red Line and 2005’s The New World.
