Available today on DVD and Blu-ray, TERRENCE MALICK’S controversial family drama THE TREE OF LIFE premiered earlier this year at the Cannes Film Festival to both cheers and jeers. It’s the usual reaction to MALICK’S work, which tends to polarize audiences because of his languid pacing and non-linear approach to storytelling. The director’s first film in six years, THE TREE OF LIFE is as visually arresting as it is frustrating in conveying this difficult story of family dynamics. The impressive cast includes BRAD PITT, SEAN PENN, JESSICA CHASTAIN, FIONA SHAW, KARI MATCHETT and JOANNA GOING.
Later at the festival, PITT met with the press to talk about the film and his experience of working with MALICK. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
