Winner of the Palme d’Or and perhaps the most talked about movie of the year so far, Terrence Malick‘s “The Tree Of Life” continues its slow roll out across the country with a bunch of new cities getting the film this weekend (click here to see if its arriving in your town). And in order to keep the momentum going behind the film, Fox Searchlight continues their finely tuned marketing campaign with perhaps the most intriguing look at the movie yet.
A new featurette has landed over at Apple and it sits down directors Christopher Nolan and David Fincher to talk (far too briefly) about Malick and his approach and technique. Frankly, just as you’re getting into it, the featurette ends and we hope there is more on the eventual DVD/BluRay (hell, Nolan is so erudite he deserves his own “Personal Journey Through American Movies” styled documentary where he just talks about various films). In fact, since Malick is pretty much guaranteed not to do a commentary track, we’d love to see something with folks like Nolan, Fincher and whoever else lending their insights over the entire film.
But, we’ll take what we can get for now and if you haven’t seen the film yet, you get a bonus treat of even more new footage peppered throughout. “The Tree Of Life” hits theaters nationwide on July 8th. Check out the video below.
