The Tree of Life review – Mad Mass

Throughout the film, the presence of strong biblical echoes is palpable, relating in particular to the Book of Job and the first chapters of Genesis, as well as the intrusion, subplots, of references to Christian Gnosticism and Heidegger’s philosophy. Bearing in mind what Father Arpa used to say about Fellini, perhaps Terrence Malick is the true “singer of Grace” in Western cinema, the only one who has been able to transpose with such skill – the film is one of the best works of the last thirty years, not to mention always – themes of such spiritual depth raising the cinema as a secular place of worship.
