"To the Wonder" is an imperfect film that perhaps reaches too high and too far, but I admire the effort, and am grateful for those moments when Malick does connect, and the film suddenly becomes glorious.
To the Wonder feels like a caricature coveting Malick's previously towering pieces of visual art. However there's more refined, contemplative poetry in this relative misstep than in a hundred Hollywood studio films.
With its pale colour palette, the film looks like whimsy, but without the humour. The characters move slowly, as if slowed by the weight of their thoughts and emotions. It's as if Malik is showing us what it would be like to be a ghostly observer
