Brad Pitt, Sean Penn film ‘Tree of Life’ previewed, fest bow rumor

HollywoodNews.com: Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life” has apparently been seen by an internet blogger from the Home Theatre Forum website.

Meanwhile, there is also random speculation by the Austin Chronicle, that the Austin-based Malick might unveil “Tree of Life” at Fantastic Fest in September. The event hosted the world premiere of “There Will Be Blood” in 2007.

Jeffrey Wells as well as Filmstage.com picked up the blogger’s comments.

Apparently, per the blogger, “Tree of Life” is three hours long which comes as no surprise – it’s a Malick epic. There is also talk that there might be two cuts of the film, similar to what Malick did with “The New World.” The blogger is under the impression that the film will be released in October, but that information has yet to be revealed by the film’s distributor Apparition. “Tree of Life” was suppose to be shown to the New York Film Festival selection committee, but was pulled away.

Filmstage.com reposts the random blogger’s general comments:

“Saw Tree of Life the other night at work and it really is amazing or hypnotic, more like. I won’t give anything away here, but yes, it is long and there has already been talk in the news about Malick releasing it and then re-cutting it, and then re-releasing it, etc.

“The main bulk of the film is about [Sean Penn’s character’s] childhood, growing up in Texas (reels 3-7 out of 9!). The “creation” footage is outstanding, absolutely jawdropping, and does indeed feel like 2001 – a lot of the effects are practical and your eyes can see that, which makes it really fascinating to watch. I don’t have a problem with the creation footage being connected to his boyhood. Most boys love dinosaurs, after all, so that’s how I looked at it.

“The story is framed around the death of his middle brother (in Korea?? We never know) and is a reflection on the circle of life, the evolution of life out of the mess of the Big Bang, but also about life itself (the strained relationship with his severe father, a stunning performance by Brad Pitt, just stunning), and the end of the Universe. I still haven’t given anything away that hasn’t already been said in the press. The film just has to be seen to be believed! One feels like a child again, seeing the world through young wide eyes.”
