Grace & Nature

Astonishing in its visuals and soundscape, this movie just screams arthouse. That doesn't necessarily make a masterpiece, but I think in this instance a great film has come out of it. Its ambitious in its scope (hey not many folk would stick a 20 minute visual segment about the origins of earth in the middle of a story about family and love.
Lots of reviews have mentioned poetic cinema, tosh and balderdash was what I originally said after reading them, but believe them. Mr Malick is a true cinematic visionary....yeah perhaps I'm pretentious too :)
Go see and be bored, mystified and amazed.....but just go see.
