    Yes, you've read our initial review of Terrence Malick's "The Tree of Life," but we've got a few more, simply because it's a film that demands discussion and contrary to popular belief, members of The Playlist do not share a brain or utilize hivemind thinking, but three writers from the site saw the...

    Cannes Review: 'The Tree Of Life' Is Terrence Malick's Universe-Spanning Search For God

    It's a bit unfair, after years of waiting and anticipation and with a world of expectation weighing on the film, to begin writing a review of Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" just minutes after leaving the screening this morning. With nearly as much time spent in line waiting to get in as watching the actual film, we would have preferred a bit more of a chance to let it linger and marinate (and perhaps more thoughts will follow in the coming days). But let's get a couple of things out of the way to start with. Firstly, "The Tree Of Life" is not the cinema-changing, soul-shattering masterpiece it has been built up into. That said, it's a h...

    Cannes Film Festival: 10 Films That Will Be Making Noise On The Croisette

    This year at Cannes, it seems that you'll be able to throw a rock and manage to hit a celebrity. In stark contrast to last year's festival -- which some colleagues told us was the worst in a decade -- Cannes honcho Thierry Fremaux is bringing the goods this year with a cineaste's wet dream of films from some of the finest auteurs working today. However, what unfolds over the next few days will be fascinating. Not everything can be a masterpiece, there will be some unexpected disasters and more enticingly, some pleasant surprises. We've run down the list of the films that are likely to be making the biggest noise on the Croisette this year, an...

    Already Sick Of Blockbusters? The Playlist's Guide To The Alternative Summer Movie Highlights

    The summer of 2011 is more stuffed with blockbusters than ever before, with every week bringing a new tentpole.

    U.K. Release For Terrence Malick's 'The Tree Of Life' Is Completely Up In The Air

    While the wait for Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" has literally been years (it was originally planned for a December 2009 release) it looks like our friends in the U.K. may be waiting longer than most to see the film. As you might recall, Icon Film Distribution made major waves last month when they announced -- and confirmed to various outlets -- that they would be releasing "The Tree Of Life" in the U.K. on May 4th, well in advance of it's planned Cannes Film Festival premiere. Despite their assertions, many wondered how long their claim would stick and there was a whole new twist to the tale when a couple of days later, sales agent fo...
