In Stylus Magazine, L. Michael Foote looks closer at two particular scenes, and he brilliantly explores the way that Terrence Malick is conveying truth through his own unique style.
I haven’t come across many reviews that have put into words what it is about Malick’s movie that I love so much. Malick has a way of communicating through imagery that is very special, very hard to find, and it speaks more powerfully to me than conventional narrative filmmaking.
Foote does a great job of highlighting how it works by focusing on two scenes here. Read it. And then go watch the film again!
