The inclusion of each cut of The New World, along with a stunning 4K restoration of the preferred extended cut and copious extras, marks this as the definitive version of Terrence Malick's greatest film.

Pure bliss, Malick's incantatory New World suspends us in time--regardless of how long it runs.

If you subscribe to the notion that more is better, you'll love the Extended Cut of The New World.

Watching The New World is a quixotic experience, but it sure is pretty while it lasts.

Though some critics have called it an epic, Malick's romantic outlook and poetic treatment make this mostly accurate film about the early days of Jamestown more of a lyric.
