    Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

    ★★★★½

    This film reminded me why I hate parties and marriage.

    Extended Edition Released on Criterion Collection:

    Despite already loving this film, after watching the extended version I can confidently say that "The Tree of Life" is the best film of the decade. This is peak cinema, we have not been blessed with an experience this entrancing and this powerful since 2001: A Space Odyssey! Terrence Malick is a visionary containing poetic depth in each one of his shots, on top of them already being captivating. Every frame is stunning and…
