This film was everything I had hoped for and infinite volumes more.
Writer/Director Terrence Malik simply refuses to see film-making as
anything short of an art form and handles his brushes (not to mention
every frame) with the tender care and command of an artistic master.
The warnings are true... if you're looking for standard Hollywood fare,
then run away. However, if you were trying hard to remember what
film-making is supposed to be about, then this film is an absolute MUST
SEE. While it is not forcefully spiritual in its aural narrative, I
found this film to be a deeply religious experience in ways that words
fail to express.
True to form, Malik affords the world of this film as much character as
the humans themselves possess. Long stretches of nothing but ambient,
nat sounds. Stunning snapshots of the peripheral influences to each
scene (i.e. blowing grass, running streams, towering trees). Even an
ending title sequence that lives beyond the narrative... breathing the
last breaths of a tale that has managed to regularly transcends words.
Sharp. Detailed. Purposeful. Bold. Brilliant.
I have not been this happy about a film in a very long time. Well worth
the money. Well worth the time. You will leave better for having seen
I could not recommend it more!.

No doubts! This is a wonderful movie, for all reasons..
no no no
this was one of the most boring movies I have ever seen. it it not a
piece of art at all, just boring...... whats art about filming the
woods with sad words in the background for the 2nd movie in a row?? the
director just points out the best parts of the Thin Red Line and tries
to overcome them by adding even longer and used scenes! I loved the
Thin Red Line, but this is just a copy of that wonderful movie, Malick
is just trying to impress everyone by making a "more fantastic" movie.
almost everyone in the cinema where laughing of most of the scenes and
everyone was relieved when the movie was finished, and it was a LOT of
peoples, swearing and laughing! try making something original the next
