Jeff Nichols presents his latest film MUD in competition

user
Jeff Nichols © RR It has taken Jeff Nichols just two films to build up a repertoire which many are comparing to that of Terrence Malick. Following on from Shotgun Stories (2007), the director of the much-acclaimed Take Shelter (2011) returns to his native Arkansas with Mud.

Review of the Palme d'Or The Tree of Life

user
Metaphysical in its narrative, ambitious in its goal, epic in its scale, and gorgeously beautiful and surreal in its visual style and art design, “The Tree of Life” is Terrence Malick’s career-summation work, a film he has been wanting (and destined) to make for decades. Read about Lubezki’s stunning imagery http://www.emanuellevy.com/comment/tree-of-life-creating-the-stunning-visuals/   A provocative and challenging film on any number of levels, Malick’s long...

Brad Pitt stars in Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life. Courtesy of Fox Searchlight. I attended an 11:00 a.m. screening of “The Tree Of Life” today. With the enormous amounts of media attention the film has been getting, I figured it best to show up early. By the time I arrived at 9:00 a.m. a massive line had already begun to form. I overheard the man at the front of the line say he had been there since 7:00 A.M. Clearly anticipation was high. When the lights went down for the st...
