Slow paced and full of visual imagery, The Tree of Life is a stunningly original feat in film. Malick's film works on numerous levels of interpretation, from a simple tale about growing up to existential ideas. There is no doubt that the film is aesthetically beautiful, with its images and Lubezki's masterful cinematography, but praise must go to Brad Pitt for one of his best performances to date. The Tree of Life is well worth a watch, simply because it is a feat in what a film can be: a reminder that a successful film can still be art and mean something.
