Schlagwort: Terrence Malick

Gnädigerweise haben Wolfi und Patrick die anderen beiden Podcastenden außen vor gelassen, denn einen 4-stündigen Superhelden-Film von einem sehr polarisierenden Regisseur muss man nicht jeder/m zumuten.

Terence Malick’s Tree of Life is about an American family and in between there are some shots of National Geographic.

The film has been on the radar of many Oscar-bloggers but surprisingly this is not really a typical Oscar-bait film. It is much more in the spirit of Cannes (where it won the Palme d’Or) meaning “if it doesn’t hurt it is not art”.

Thankfully I watched the movie two days before they gave the highest honour of Cannes to it so I did not know whether this movie was highly regarded or not and I guess I would have been a bit more disappointed having heard the insane praise this movie received before entering.
