The Tree of Life (Video Review), reviewed by Anders Wotzke on 2011-06-14T00:01:33+00:00 rating 3.5 out of5

I loathe having to review a film like Terrance Malick’s Palme d’Or winning The Tree of Life. Why? Because it’s the kind of epic art film that to summate in a few measly sentences would be a grave injustice to the thousands of hours poured into its inspired creation. So that’s why I decided to make a silly, inane video review instead!

Like an elephant parading on bubble wrap, The Tree of Life breaks new ground with every step. It’s just a shame that some of those strides are more ponderous than they are profound.
