"Tree of Life" this Saturday
"The tree of Life", screening this Saturday night at All Seasons hotel on Mandalay Avenue, Nelly Bay, is Magnetic Island Film Society's movie of the month.
ABC's At the Movies reviewer, Margaret Pomeranz, writes, "For me this is a most audacious, wonderful film. While it lacks a conventional narrative structure, it has a poetic vision. Early in the film Malick represents the earth's creation and the beginning of life in an awe-inspiring sequence that somehow puts the minute matter of human beings in some sort of perspective, as does the family's relationship to God."
