The Tree of Life

Review: The Tree of Life

At times beautiful, but equally frustrating

I wish I could write as eloquently as others above, but all the same - here goes. . . .
Whilst this was visually stunning, I found the flashing forward / flashing backward frustrating. I also have to admit that I was confused about what was going on, and what I was supposed to be referencing. The "story" kicks off about 1 hour in and as I tend to enjoy linear stories, this is the part I enjoyed.The exploration of the "American family unit" was certainly interesting, and had some really touching moments.
The last 10 minutes or so - again a bit confusing - I get what it was about, but. . . well - maybe a bit to "arty" for me.
