Malick seems to be trying to crystallise - in his own abstract way - a running theme in his work that dates back to Days of Heaven: that however significant or insignificant our lives turn out to be, our continued existence is a miracle in itself.
yes, yes, i am touched by your rivetting account of such a film. just sit there in your rocking chair and use you big words to justify your incoherent thoughts. This is a film made by Mallick, for Mallick and no one else. i would love to sit beside you in this film while you try and keep your glassy eyes wide open after 20 minutes of pointless galactic imagery and dinosaurs lost in the forrest. all you'd be thinking is 'how do i tell my audience that i love this film, to make myself look intelligent' one day, someone will make an abstract, surrealist film that you will 'love to deat' although soon after - to your surprise, you realise that the film maker was just fucking with your head. By loving this movie, you are supporting the rapid downfall of the film industry. nothing but pretentious, and self -loving rubbish.

Your continued existence as a film critic is "a miracle in itself."
Trite tripe. Flickering flame "cosmic energetics" to the inevitable
Janus passage (walking through door casing to truth)...just outrageously cliched. Please!
