Unfortunately, when you try to bring everything together, it's hard to tell what Malick is trying to get at.

Malick's script reinforces some of the unlikely myths like Mataoaka's romance with John Smith and Mataoaka dramatically risking her life to save Smith's life. But like most Malick films it is also a finely painted portrait showing the smallness of man in
