Honestly 1/10 is a generously high rating for this movie

This is my first review on IMDb. I just had to write this review because this "film" was seriously awful.

I dismiss anyone who rated this film highly as pretentious and empty-headed. There were just too many scenes that didn't make any sense. Including, but not limited to Jessica Chastain floating by the tree, the child sending his mother's gown down the river, and the scene at the end where all these randoms start frolicking around.

I appreciate unique and creative films but this one was just too... nonsensical. Utterly nonsensical. The point of the movie is never really made clear. It was only until I read the synopsis that I learned that Sean Penn, a celebrated actor who barely appears in 5% of the film, is actually the kid as a grown man. Either you have to be a genius to pick up on that, or I'm just too stupid to have figured that out, or I accidentally missed some scene in this film where Penn's character actually tells the audience "oh I'm the kid btw."

A film should never be given a high rating solely based on artsiness or high production value. A film should have, more than anything, a plot. Which I never picked up on in those agonizing 2 hours and 19 minutes.

Does away with purpose. Annoyingly 'artistic'

I'm just short of hating this movie. It is way, way, way too long for what it is trying to do. I might have appreciated like a 30 minute short of this style, pace, tempo, etc, but I just couldn't get through it without feeling bitter about wasting my time.

If you saw 2001: A Space Odyssey, and loved the psychedelic space baby nonsense at the end, and feel that 2001's biggest fault was that it wasn't almost *entirely nonsense*, then consider watching Tree of Life.

I don't think there was a single still video shot in the entire movie. Panning, sliding, zooming, steadycam running. Every. Single. Edit. Probably 50% of the movie is close-up shots of Jessica Chastain in perfect Magic-Hour lighting with birds chirping in the breeze.

Oh, and whispering. So much whispering.

One of my favorite movies of all time and here's why

I made a YouTube video essay review about this... https://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=AyXiIRHmL40

Because tree of life changed my life in a way that I couldn't understand immediately after watching, but it creeps into your skin and allows you to see the world in a different way. You need to be bored to be moved. You need to be overwhelmed to find meaning. And its almost supposed to be incomplete and unfinished, this movie made me reconceptualize what movies are supposed to do, mean, and be created.
