Finally, a trailer for ‘Tree of Life’

After years of anticipation for Terrence Malick’s next film, we finally have a trailer for his upcoming Tree of Life.   Since the project was announced, we’ve gotten along with almost no knowledge of what it’s about, but after seeing this trailer….well, we still don’t really have any idea what it’s about.  But it does give us a sense of what Malick is going for both visually and emotionally.  The film looks mightily ambitious, perhaps more ambitious than anything Malick has done, and that alone is reason for excitement.

The one thing we probably can assume about Tree of Life is that it’ll be brilliant.  Malick has produced only four films in his career over a 36-year span, and all four have been masterworks.  The guy is as far from prolific as you get, but he also might be the medium’s greatest cinematic poet.
