“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.

    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.
