Four Quick Thoughts on Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life"

The still from this brief scene above may very well be one of the most breathtaking things I've ever seen filmed. Incidentally, the trailer is embedded below so two different versions of this image are in this post = I really loved that scene!

Dinosaurs did not have to make an appearance (and paraphrasing Amelia: except in Jurassic Park, do they ever need to make an appearance?).

Doppelgangers: If ever there is a bio-pic made of Ed Ruscha, Sean Penn should get the part.

It's worth seeing. Thankfully beautiful cinematography (Hamilton Pool and Barton Springs = hello last year's cake floats!) overrides some fundamental problems with the movie itself. A review of the film can be found here.
