I must admit that I know the name Terence Malick and I know he directed The Thin Red Line but sadly I’ve never seen any of his films before. But now with his new movie The Tree of Life I realized I need to get to seeing more of his films. The Tree of Life stars Brad Pitt, Sean Penn and Jessica Chastain in “a tale of a Midwestern boy’s journey from the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as a “lost soul in the modern world”, and his quest to regain meaning in life.” Sounds like an interesting plot and from what I saw in the trailer visually it looks amazing. He has a very human, almost reality TV sense of shooting that makes you feel like you’re actively participating in a scene.
The film comes out March 27, 2011.
