To The Wonder Reviews

September 6, 2017
Though Malick has a knack for enhancing the mood of each scene with stunning visual effects, it's not enough to boost the film.

September 5, 2017
It's watchable, at times sexy, at others painfully touching, yet seems random, lifeless and obscure.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 9, 2017
As far as a plot goes, To the Wonder does not tell a story as much as present a cast, place them in a situation with minimal dialogue, and allow the audience to fill in the vast spaces that stretch out beyond.
October 14, 2016
This elusive 'something' is key to Malick's film; the intangible tide that disconnects people with as much mystery as it drew them so intensely together.
June 21, 2016
In its own way, it's an involving picture, but Malick's form is too frequently working against his content.

Moving and thought provoking.

Your response to all this depends extremely heavily on how much philosophizing and pretty pictures you're willing to accept in lieu of a story.

To the Wonder shouldn't be passed off as "self-parody," but as Malick's self-destructed misfire.

April 16, 2014
Malick is employing his usual style of montage and voice-over narration but in a new, contemporary setting that makes Wonder feel like his most vital work in years.
April 9, 2014
Jane and Neil find themselves brushing against each other in a large field right up next to a herd of brown bison amid rustling grasses, as if grass were ever still when a camera, Malick's camera, is directed its way.
March 3, 2014
Love is a many-splendored thing, except when it isn't in To the Wonder, a wispy romantic movie about the death of a romance.
Full Review | Original Score: D
February 20, 2014
Instead of searching through the mysteries of the universe, Terrence Malick cuts open his heart for all to look inside.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
February 4, 2014
The bursts of beauty Malick creates have true redemptive power.

January 1, 2014
Terrence Malick's films have not been very accessible in the past. If this one is any indication, they are becoming less so. The narrative is thin, slow moving and ambiguous in places. It is moody, sombre and melancholy.

I think there's something sufficient to love about such a bold film.

September 16, 2013
To The Wonder - the best American feature by far of 2013: beautiful, compassionate, tragic, transcendent.
Full Review | Original Score: 4 stars
September 1, 2013
Mesmo que apresente-se irregular, é suficientemente sensível e revelador para fazer jus à filmografia do diretor.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 29, 2013
In its conventionally alienating extremes, this is probably Malick's most pure expression of his uniquely impressionistic, almost extra-sensory cinematic gifts, transporting one to a meditative wavelength of emotional experience.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
August 20, 2013
At times the film actually feels like a parody of an arthouse movie rather than a work produced by a director often unjustly described as a cinematic genius.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 12, 2013
With its florid narration, non-linear structure, and endless shots of a woman in flowing skirts twirling in fields, on beaches, and in supermarket aisles, it's dangerously close to being a parody of a Malick movie.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
