Like 5 minutes epic. [Cool]

It's made by three film makers...the Wachowski bros and the guy who made Run Lola Run.

Get it while you can. The WB is scouring the nets trying to remove this trailer.

Desperately hoping this is better than The Fountain.

Hey . . . The Fountain was really good! Not great. But it was really good.

I did like the Fountain, but it wasn't the movie I expected to be. Maybe a better phrasing is:

"This looks like the kind of movie I expected the Fountain to be. Given that the Fountain already exists, I hope this one actually IS the movie I expected the Fountain to be."

(That is, deep and compelling but also a bit more traditional and without resorting to ambiguity to make itself seem deeper)

(By contrast, last year's Tree of Life looked like what the Fountain actually WAS. I haven't actually seen and am not sure how it compares but now I sort of want to watch them all in a short timespan)

Man, I tried to watch Tree of Life...didn't get very far. Style is nice and all, but not when it gets in the way of storytelling.

Wow, this looks really interesting.

It also looks like it needs to be about four hours long to make sense.

Is the book worth reading?

I enjoyed every story in it, and I felt that the book is really a novella collection with the novellas thematically being connected (and loosely being connected in narrative), with a cliffhanger gimmick thrown in for kicks.

I saw The Thin Red Line some time ago and it bored me to tears. However, as always happens to me when it comes to artsy films, I now can't stop thinking about the film. I guess my expectations of what it was going to be had much to do with my reaction (I thought it be a war film a la Saving Private Ryan -- but it's not. It's a consistently brooding and meditative art film.) Anyway, I want to see it again and seriously go through the whole of Terrence Mallick's work including The Tree of Life because I find scenes like this:

...to be so rapturous and beautiful and the sort of thing I love to see in films.
