Outstanding Documentary
18 September 2012 | by (Salt Lake City) – See all my reviews

The Tree of Life Blu-ray disc has only two Extras. The theatrical trailer and this documentary on Exploring the film. Both are masterful and worth spending some time with. Usually it is a mistake to watch the Extra section before seeing the film itself. In this case I think it would work well in watching these prior to seeing the film. THE TREE OF LIFE is not a conventional film in any shape or form. Having some insight into the film would better prepare a viewer. The film itself requires more than one viewing to even begin to fully understand the poetic and spiritual beauty that it offers to anyone willing to watch and ponder the film several times.
