Happy Terrence Malick Day!

Happy Terrence Malick Day!

I am about to head for the first screening of Terrence Malick’s long-awaited “Tree of Life.” The Cannes press screening starts at 8:30 am. A press conference follows, at which, I am told, Mr. Malick will be there. (I ran into the cinematographer for the second unit yesterday, who said he wished people knew how “normal” Malick really was. All mysteries aside, “He’s just a really good person.”)

Anyway. We’ll have coverage for all of it, but in the meantime please enjoy this extraordinary series of video essays by my friend and unabashed Malick obsessive, Matt Zoller Seitz.
