If you want easy entertainment, you shouldn't see this movie (see Super 8 which is very
entertaining). Tree of Life is visually dazzling, even the parts that don't make a lot of sense. The story is non-linear and dialog is very limited; voices are often whispers. Yet Malick creates a fascinating visual poem (sort of) centered around a Waco, Texas family with a demanding father (Pitt), a loving mother and their three sons. Yes, there is also the creation of the universe, some brief time with dinosaurs, a very odd reconciliation of sort near the end, and a bunch of other pieces to this film. Worth the time.
I saw the play on Broadway with Langella and Sheen and enjoyed a memorable live drama. The movie is
still very good thanks to a fine job by Ron Howard (and I'm not a fan of him as a director) in not diluting the play. Plus terrific performances by the principal actors.
