‘Tree of Life’ tops list of 10 best films of the decade – Chron.com

1. “Tree of Life”: All the mystery and harmony of life, in the memory-tinged detail of a small-town 1950s Texas family but writ across time and the cosmos. Terrence Malick’s radiant 2011 film maps individual existence against eternity, turning an intimate tale epic. It’s got Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain and dinosaurs, and it’s one of the most sublime and soul-stirring movies ever made. — Associated Press film writer Jake Coyle

A look at the big pictures – The Weekend Australian

The Tree of Life (Terrence Malick, 2011). First and clear. A mind-bending exploration of life from beginning to end. Also a ­reminder that Brad Pitt, who is being lauded for his acting chops in Ad Astra (which is good but not great), has always been a damn fine actor.

A mind-bending exploration of life tops a very personal list of the best films of the past 10 years.
