The Tree of Life [Blu-ray]

Four decades into an already legendary career, Terrence Malick realized his most rapturous vision to date, tracing a story of childhood, wonder, and grief to the outer limits of time and space. Reaching back to the dawn of creation, Malick sets a story of boyhood memories on a universal scale, charting the coming of age of an awestruck child (newcomer Hunter McCracken) in Texas in the 1950s, as he learns to navigate the extremes of nature and grace represented by his bitter, often tyrannical father (Brad Pitt) and his ethereal, nurturing mother (Jessica Chastain, in her breakout role). Shot with nimble attention to life’s most fleeting moments by Emmanuel Lubezki, the Palme d’Or–winning The Tree of Life marks the intimately personal, cosmically ambitious culmination of Malick’s singular approach to filmmaking.

Either you’re in or you’re out (and that’s ok) I try not to become angry with the Malick haters. I think I understand their frustration, but I suspect it arises either from misunderstanding or from having very different artistic tastes. I respect the latter. I have close friends who just can’t deal with The Tree of a Life (the shaky camera, the whispers, the abstractions, the dinosaurs, etc.). What I have never seen, however, is a critique that demonstrates genuine insight into the film’s content. I’m not claiming to understand everything…
