The Story

Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.

"Brother. Mother. It was they who led me to your door."

Good luck to anyone who wants me to do something that doesn’t involve sitting on this sofa for the next two hours.

Empire have put together an interesting time line comparing the number of films Terrence Malick (black dots) has churned out to that of a few of his fellow film makers (blue dots).

I’m never comfortable in claiming recently viewed films to be in my all time favourites but I have no arguments in that The Tree of Life is one of the greatest and most important of all time.
