    Emmanuel Lubezki Says "A Whole Other Movie" About Sean Penn Could Be Made From Cut 'Tree Of Life' Footage

    One of the enduring legacies thus far for Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" has been chatter about his plans to prepare an extended version of the movie. Word of it first cropped up last summer when Oscar-nominated cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki revealed, "The first cut ...

    Shocks Abound As Oscar Noms Are Announced; 'Hugo' Leads With Eleven, 'Tree Of Life' Gets Picture & Director Nods

    It's Oscar nomination morning! You know, like Christmas morning, if you spent most of the rest of Christmas Day bitching that you didn't like your presents. And if your presents were chosen by a group of elderly sound mixers. And if an entire industry developed around guessing what you were going to...

    'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' Gets Some Love In ASC Nominations, 'War Horse' Once Again Left In The Barn

    The most interesting thing about watching the awards season is how the narratives slowly take shape and change over the dense, fast-moving months leading up to the Oscars. Back in the fall, "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" was being tipped as the movie to beat, with Gary Oldman said to be locke...

    Summit Veep Confirms Terrence Malick Had Final Cut On 'The Tree Of Life'

    It seems we can't stop talking about "The Tree Of Life." Terrence Malick's film continues to unfold with each viewing, and with the passing of more time, as his work tends to do. The director is known for shooting lots of footage, and leaving much on the cutting room floor, and so ...

    My Favorite Films Of 2011: Kevin Jagernauth

    The annual top ten list is pretty much an exercise in futility to some degree. With a race to cram in as many movies as possible as the clock on the year winds down (and let it be said, I didn't get to see everything I would have wanted to) combined with the added duty of then ranking them, it&#...

    The Year In Review, Part One -- The Notable Highlights & Lowlights Of January-June 2011

    Well, with twelve months basically in the can, it’s time to put the year to bed, and hopefully, into a little perspective. 2011 was, well, just another year in movies, and that's not to say it was an uninteresting year, it's just that while things are evolving, and not always for the better, Hollywo...

    Drew Taylor's Favorite Films Of 2011

    2011 was undoubtedly the year of Terrence Malick's "Tree of Life." It just wasn't for me. After winning the Palme d'Or on the same day that I saw the movie, I was left feeling baffled. Like I had missed something.

    Gabe Toro's Best Films Of 2011

One doesn’t schedule, or plan the impact of art (making a film review deceptive, as it can never be a critics’ final th...
