Tree of Life

Confusing, mad, and all over the place.  The thread of a boy’s relationship with his very difficult father is tricky to follow, amid the pretentious narrative and over the top, ram it down your throat imagery. Terrence Malik appears to trade better in images than words, and the constraints of the communication are sometimes excruciating, much like the father’s (Brad Pitt) attempts to raise his sons to avoid the mistakes he himself made.

And yet …

This film is absolutely beautiful, thought-provoking and visually exquisite.  It’s totally and utterly unique, and I think I absolutely loved it.
