To The Wonder Reviews

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Instead of searching through the mysteries of the universe, Terrence Malick cuts open his heart for all to look inside.

The bursts of beauty Malick creates have true redemptive power.

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

To The Wonder - the best American feature by far of 2013: beautiful, compassionate, tragic, transcendent.
Full Review | Original Score: 4 stars

Mesmo que apresente-se irregular, é suficientemente sensível e revelador para fazer jus à filmografia do diretor.

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.

"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.

If you give yourself up to it, you'll be carried along-not knowing where you're going, and never really minding much either.

What is most affecting is Malick's intent. He plainly devised the story to give him a series of panels for the expression of feeling.

Its ambitions might be slight, but its impact is more than slightly powerful.
May 3, 2013
Terrence Malick is to light as Orson Welles was to shadow: the master.

April 27, 2013
Indisputably comes off as a minor work on the heels of Malick's The Tree of Life but still holds enough of interest for the initiated.

Malick succeeds in creating his a separate reality, one drenched with longing and fear.
