One of the most intriguing filmmakers of our time is Terrence Malick. In a career spanning decades as a filmmaker, screenwriter and producer, Malick has directed only five feature films – oh, but what films! Some consider Malick’s films to be masterpieces (even the greatest films ever made).
Malick may seem like an enigma, as his meditative (sometimes oblique) approach to storytelling can be a challenge for some audiences, but there is no doubt that his films seek a greater understanding beyond the events in his films.
Malick’s latest film is scheduled for release this May and it’s been shrouded in secrecy for years. And while we’re not exactly sure about the film’s story, with a bold title like “The Tree of Life,” Malick seems to raising the bar on even his own body of visionary work.
