Tree Of Life Movie

Tree Of Life MovieTree Of Life Movie, One can say that Terrence Malick makes movies more unusual to find its way into mainstream theaters. The Tree of Life is Badlands (1973), Days of Heaven (1978), The Thin Red Line (1998) and The New World (2005). Note the time interval after Days of Heaven – the director in particular secret movie game disappeared. His return, The Thin Red Line, was established at the Battle of World War II Guadalcanal and full of reflections on violence in a bad mood and nature. The New World uses the first years of the colony of Virginia for more of the same. The Tree of Life changes the background of a small town in Texas in the 1950′s, the scenario in which Malick grew, but the issue does not change his style or major concern. Again, that reflects on the cosmic mysteries of life and spirituality as indifference to conventional narrative stun those who know they are still a mystery to be pondered.

At first, the O’Brien family is shattered by the sudden death of one of the three children left unexplained circumstances. Here we see the elder son, Jack (Sean Penn), a pensive middle-aged architect looking out the windows of skyscrapers in Houston. Then in the final flashback, The Tree of Life back to the early universe through the play of light, crashing waves and erupting volcanoes, and finally to the emergence of life on Earth, floating jellyfish and loping dinosaur.

This brings us finally to the birth of a baby who becomes Jack, boys O’Brien.

The film is based on the childhood of Jack, as a child (played by the excellent McCracken Hunter), tinkering with his brothers in an idyllic neighborhood, struggles with the first flowering of sexual curiosity, but mostly provides his father (Brad Pitt), an engineer and former soldier of patents in his name, but a frustration with not having been eroded his gift for music. The relationship between father and son is more focused on the film, as the father is remembered for moments of affection, caring, strict discipline and coming tyranny.

By contrast, Jack’s mother (Jessica Chastain) comforts her children with the promise of grace. The film is a long meditation, slowly swinging told with little dialogue or plot cause and effect. It was built from hours of improvisation shot more than three years, then built through an epic metaphysical edition, loaded with a classic soundtrack and rhythms that recall the marks Malick slower sections 2001: An Odyssey space.

Has much to recommend, including the exquisite photography, the creation bold stream of life, fragments of the idea of ??teen angst and performance of the absorption of Pitt as a set of contradictions that hypnotize and alienate your child. On the other hand, the scenes seem indulgent nonsense Penn and Malick struggles in the extreme of giving visual form to abstract desires.

The Tree of Life, which took first prize at the Cannes Film Festival, is clearly a personal work of Malick, who lost a brother at a young age and has spent his career trying to reconcile the brutality of life with the promise of redemption and reconciliation.

Many viewers were puzzled, if not antagonized by the self-centered vision and originality Malick brain. However, in an art form full of people just trying to imitate the successes of others, their movie deserves the patience required.
