Rating History

The Tree of Life
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Unlike 'A Serious Man' that seemed incomprehensible and cruel in its incomprehensibleness, 'The Tree of Life' is incomprehensible because Life is so vast it is beyond comprehension. Malick captures this sense of awe we feel if we took the time to fathom, "What is life? How did it start? If it started because of certain ingredients, where did those ingredients come from? How did THEY start?"

The questions go round and round like the film and you feel dizzy and overwhelmed and excited and sleepy and peaceful and disturbed.

Not for everyone, indeed, but everyone should stick their toe in this kind of water once in their life to see a glimpse of what's on the other side.

Griff the Invisible
5 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This is one of the best movies I've ever seen. It champions people who refuse to walk the well-trodden path. Critic who do't like it obviously prefers the obvious, the well-worn.

This movie is inspiring and a real treat for the romantics in all of us. I predict this will become a cult classic.

Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It's unpredictable, fresh, and creative. Vanessa Hudgens as Sa5m is adorable and Mychalka has been launched as a star thanks to her performance in this film. The geek-deep musical technique lesson in the film is also pretty interesting. The show number at the end is fantastic--ended up by buying the movie soundtrack because of it. Now every time I listen to it on my iPhone it brings cheer to the day. Get the DVD and watch this! Fully recommended!

A Serious Man
A Serious Man (2009)

If you want to be subjected to the most cynical, opinionated, inhumane viewpoint, with no redeeming value whatsoever, then this film is for you.

The main character, Larry, is a useless and incapable caricature. He's not even human because nobody, and I do mean nobody, is this stupid. Mr. Bean is a genius compared to this guy. He lets everyone step all over him: his unfaithful wife, her lover, his church, his rabbis, his children, his co-workers, his lawyers, his brother. Viewers cannot appreciate his predicament because viewers will not be able to imagine anyone in real life to take all the crap Larry takes in and not do something about it.

Basically, after this film, I'll never watch a Coen Brothers film ever again. They've revealed they don't care about their audience.
