The Tree of Life (Malick, 2011)


There are no dolphins in this film.

The only way I can make positive sense out of this film: it is a visual documentary about people that have absolutely no control over their lives whatsoever. No matter how hard they try to take decisions, no matter how they are bent - it just doesnt matter. Especially if you're protestant. Hovering on the edge of kitsch throughout. People whispering in voiceover for three hours gives it more of a catholic touch, however.

very good scene when the boys gang up to smash a window.

Still feels that one could get more out of Brad Pitt, even if he did quite a good job.

Moral: Thanks god, I'm Jewish! (even if I don't believe)
