The song would fit the trailer if the German poster had anything to say about it.

Do they ever actually skip rocks or is this poster indicative of some sort of DELETED SCENE??

Doubtful. Malick never leaves any footage on the cutting room floor.
Some people have a fear of snakes. That was a somewhat rational fear. And you could do something about it at least. Stay away from long grass and nature documentaries. Easy. Others have a fear of heights. That was manageable too. Avoid tall ladders. But how do you cope when your fear is something you can’t avoid? That you have no hope of staying away from? Being afraid of the sky, where are you going to go?

I think Sleepless was being sarcastic. There was also a 6 hour cut of The Thin Red Line.

I would watch a 6 hour Terrence Malick movie. I'd watch the shit out of it. I'd watch a 6 hour Terrence Malick movie like nobodies ever seen!
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

If the Sean Penn scenes are set in the present day, shouldn't he be in his late 60's?
It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

That critic who fought against him should've shot him in the face when he had the chance.

Had the break the couple weeks hiatus to say that I finally saw this and it was wonderful. Best film since CMBB.

It's not the kind of film I usually enjoy. I don't mind at all slowness at all but I like lots of dialogue. My favorite director is probably Rohmer by now. But I found Tree of Life to speak volumes even in the silent parts. I found myself looking back at my life, my childhood, my future, my choices, what kind of person I am and what kind of man my father is and was.

I saw myself on the street as a kid. I did not live 50s america obviously, but I do feel like I lived the end of an era. While watching the film I lived old memories and it was a wonderful. I think it is because the film takes it's time that you can get into it so much.

I cannot say how it is in your parts of the world, but you barely see any kid in the streets nowadays. They are all braindead Farmville zombies who take pictures of themselves and post them on the internet for no god damn reason. When I was 10, my mom had to walk through hell just to get me to wash myself or come back home when I was playing with friends. Now, 10 year olds ask their moms for Axe Body Wash.

Tree of Life is nostalgic yet fair, and I think it will enjoy cult status for a long time.

I don't know, it's not that bad I thought. Wait for the american cover, it will blow for sure.

Sean Penn bitch-slaps ‘Tree of Life’

It seems actor Sean Penn is still upset about the fact that so much of his performance in “The Tree of Life” was left on the cutting room floor.

"I didn’t at all find on the screen the emotion of the script, which is the most magnificent one that I’ve ever read. A clearer and more conventional narrative would have helped the film without, in my opinion, lessening its beauty and its impact. Frankly, I’m still trying to figure out what I’m doing there and what I was supposed to add in that context! What’s more, Terry himself never managed to explain it to me clearly."
