Malick's most recent cinematic poetry of existential contemplation - The Tree of Life. It has been long awaited by cinephiles around the world (myself included), and after viewing the trailer, it would seem that it has been well worth it - goose bumps and chills (i don't get that from a trailer often). I am thoroughly intrigued and in wonderment over the thematic weight (reminiscent of 2001 Space Odyssey). I am a bit bewildered by how this man continues to get large budgets for 2 1/2 hr experimental, poetic narratives, but I'm happy as hell that he does.
