The Next Best Picture Podcast – “The Tree Of Life”

Our 2011 retrospective continues, and with the Cannes Film Festival happening in just a few days, we’re now reviewing the second Best Picture nominee from that year which had its world premiere at Cannes and won the coveted Palme d’Or, Terrence Malick’s mesmerizingly beautiful “The Tree Of Life” starring Brad Pitt, Sean Penn & Jessica Chastain. Hailed as one of the most breathtaking and gorgeously shot films of all time, please take a listen as Dan Bayer, Brendan Hodges, Danilo Castro, and I break down what the film means to us emotionally, personally, and spiritually. We go over what we thought of the film’s scope and ambition, the performances, the visual effects work for its dawn of the universe sequence, its awards run, and more. Thank you for all your support, and enjoy! Also, be sure to check out our other 2011 retrospective reviews for “War Horse,” “The Help,” “The Iron Lady,” & “Midnight In Paris.”
