Ugh. That's just...unfortunate. I've seriously never heard anyone give a good defense of that movie's greatness. It's like people saw a movie from Malick that had a "loose" plot and some pretty images and they just gave it the benefit of the doubt and hailed it as great. It's one of the most pretentious, nonsensical movies I've ever seen. To me, it's a poorly done "art" film with a trite message. Screw that movie.

You took the words right out of my mouth! :mrgreen:

Eh... I kind of liked it. It grew on me, I guess. I wouldn't look to it for any definite messages or philosophical underpinnings, but the family dynamic was familiar and felt natural. I liked it because it captured feelings well: loneliness, frustration, and being lost in the world around you. That aside, you can't deny that the cinematography and film editing were both fantastic.

Tree of Life is a frustrating movie because it has such obvious, glaring flaws... and yet it's so good.

I must say, I respect the general lack of 2-digit ranking for films made after 1980. As it should be.
