Film on its way: The Tree of Life

I rarely write about movies/ films, but every now and then there’s a film coming out that excites me: a heavy, jazzy, worthwhile experience that I actually can’t wait to see.

Terrence Malick‘s The Tree of Life:

The goddamned trailer made me cry. I love the use of Smetana‘s Ma Vlast: No. 2. Vltava (Die Moldau).

“Father… mother… always you wrestle inside me….”

“Someday, we’ll fall down and weep… and we’ll understand it all… all things.”

The helix/ crysalis stained-glass window image at 1:39….

Goddamned brilliant.
