Go ahead and take away my credibility badge...The film is one of the most emotionally affecting and profound experiences of my life, regardless of how recent it is.

The Patriot Ledger

You'd be hard pressed to find an examination of human existence as profound and spiritual as Terrence Malick's mind-blowing trip through the cosmos.

We Got This Covered

The lack of story or purpose is annoying and at times, the film is too experimental. Topping things off is an abrupt and unsatisfying ending which doesn't leave us with good feelings towards the film.

Absurdly over-rated...

Malick may have pushed the envelope a bit too far, losing the ability to see the forest for the trees - even in a film as beautiful and surreal as The Tree of Life

It's fair to say that everyone will get at least something out of this film.

While it doesn't leave you as breathless as Malick would like, The Tree of Life will stir your soul and make you think. Which is an outcome every moviemaker should aspire to create.

Dial M For Movies

Malik's vision and deeply powerful imagery outlives its welcome after 20 minutes, leaving a film that meanders along trying to impress with concepts and ideas.

Es cierto que la película es ambiciosa, y que no va a gustarle a todo el mundo. Pero para quien logre conectar con ella, puede resultar en una experiencia removedora y visualmente impactante.

Laramie Movie Scope

I'm not sure all of its diverse elements successfully make a whole story, but I am giving this film extra credit for being so incredibly ambitious, visually stunning and humane. It is a refreshing contrast to films that show the worst of humanity.

A visually dazzling, intentionally polarizing examination of life and death, and the beauty and darkness hidden between.

Terrence Malick's astonishing masterpiece of light, movement, and spirit, casts a dizzying spell and somehow manages to pronounce the ineffable while telling its humble tale.

Eric D. Snider

A movie rooted in philosophy is bound to feel, well, philosophical. Expecting a filmmaker to avoid highfalutin' imagery and ideas when he's examining The Nature of Man is like expecting a geometry teacher to avoid talking about angles.

Movie Metropolis

A rich film that sets lofty goals for itself, and doesn't fall short by much.

Writer/director Terrence Malick has defied the odds and created a masterpiece of harrowing truth and deeply felt emotion.

A bold, epic exercise that Malick comes close to pulling off. It may not stack up against his best, but it doesn't fail to incite feelings of awe in its audience, either.

Yes, it is a very strange film but, cutting Malick some slack for artistic license, his film is also compelling and hypnotic.
