I've had this problem with two movies in one week. The first was Melancholia, a movie I discuss in the dystopian movie thread as either magnificent or a work of relentless snobbery. The second is The Tree of Life. I watched it last night, several times, back-to-back. It may well be the finest movie ever made, and the best film that ever will be made. Or, it is naked emperor level pretentious. Two viewings in I have no idea which. I have to watch it again tonight to see if I can find the key to whether or not this film is the ultimate cinematic masterpiece, or a bunch of pseudo-intellectual nonsense.
