Tree of Life

Director: Terrence Malick, Main cast: Brad PittSean Penn and Jessica Chastain

Malick’s lysergic trip about the meaning of life through the eyes of a boy… no wait… of a man who remembers his childhood, his strict, harsh father and loving, sweet mother…maybe metaphors for pragmatism and faith, man and god…who knows, Malick doesn’t either. Sean Penn and Brad Pitt do their best but the script doesn’t help. Anyway he made a third of the movie ransacking the Hubble Space Telescope image gallery (I hope he paid for them and supported research) so those are definitely stunning, the rest is just stoned. Darren Aronofsky‘s obsessed mind is easier to understand so watch The Fountain instead. — 3/10
