    May 9, 2022:

    I have seen The Tree of Life four times so far: the theatrical cut three times and the extended cut once. I have always wanted to write an in-depth review for this film because it is one of my all-time favorites and I am a huge fan of Terrence Malick's work. I have tried to write a detailed review for it several times, but I was unable to. The film is extremely dense and experimental to the…

However, I think it is very important to revisit films I love. Sometimes I need to rewatch and rewrite my reviews for certain films. Overtime, my perspective towards certain films changes. I want to use this as an opportunity to go into detail and explain why the films I passionately…
