It’s a rare occasion. A new Terence Malick film has rolled around in the form of the Tree of Life. This is then 5th film by Terence Malick, whose films go back to 1973 in Badlands. Terence Malick had directed Badlands, Days of Heaven and there was a 20 gap until the Thin Red Line the war film then there was the New Road and now we arrived at the Tree of Life. Terence Malick is a very interesting and provocative director, who works entirely on his own terms it’s very philosophical and astute directing.
