Hello Chicago Film Lovers,
OK, I'm taking a risk, I'm choosing a film I haven't seen before, this film is Terrence Malik's "The Tree of Life". I've heard and read such great things about this film. Some say the film is pretentious, but critics agree, it's a work of art. Ebert compared it to "2001: A Space Odyssey" (see quote below). So for those of you who also haven't seen this movie, hope you are intrigued as I am. And if you have, even better. I look forward to seeing you all at our next meetup to talk about "The Tree of Life".
Ebert quote: "The only other film I've seen with this boldness of vision is Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey," and it lacked Malick's fierce evocation of human feeling . . ."
