I was just about to post this exact thing, pretty much word for word.

The Fountain? The Fountain was terrible.

I imagine that was probably his point.

EDIT: Okay, nope - it wasn't: just scanned his review (http://www.movingpicturesnetwork.com/27914/tree-life-review/)
"Should I bring my own chains?"
"We always do..."

why would that be his point? you don't have to read his review to know ">" means "greater than"... have you never come across that symbol before?

pretty strange for a dude with a PhD to not know that.. :ponder:

Um, yes - I'm familiar with the symbol! I interpreted his meaning to be: "Although I'm a Malick fan, I must say that The Tree of Life is less good even than this other famously self-indulgent film about the tree of life." But as I soon discovered, dude seems to actually LIKE Aronofsky's worst hour.
"Should I bring my own chains?"
"We always do..."

Plus, everyone knows that people who use the phrase "I love me some..." are automatically invalidated. Any time. Every time.
Maybe every day is Saturday morning.

Albuquerque GETS IT June 17th. And it's going to GET IT. Because I'm going to give it to it! HARD.

Can't wait to see it next year! Thanks Fox Searchlight!
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

Whens the widespread American release, next month I'm guessing?

I remember before I knew what this was about I thought it was an adaptation of "The giving tree" in the vein of WTWTA, and I was like " How are they gonna make that into a movie, and why the fuck are ppl so excited about it? " I guess it still could be a cool movie though, if they pulled the other one off.
