“THE MOST MOVING AMERICAN [FILM] IN THE FIFTEEN YEARS I’VE BEEN A CRITIC”
Matt Zoller Seitz on The New World:

Other people direct movies. Terrence Malick builds cathedrals. “The New World” is my new religion, easily the most pictorially innovative and moving American studio release I’ve seen in the 15 years I’ve been a professional movie critic. To appreciate it requires viewers to abandon narrative filmmaking conventions they’re comfortable with (perhaps even spoiled by) and learn a new language, a primordial language of pictures that largely bypasses narrative cinema’s persistent theatrical influence and plugs into the rhythms of thought.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    Looking forward to “Lights in the Dusk” (Laitakaupungin valot is its Finnish title if anyone searches for it online) and have been eager to see “Drifting Clouds” again.
    Surprised to see that Kati Outinen isn’t in this one, since she was in the other two.

    Sounds like some interesting stuff in there.
