I just watched the Tree of Life for the second time, and I have to say, the film really has grown on me. I didn't really like it, like it the first time, but I'm appreciating it a bit more.
I grew up with an old-school father like Brad Pitt's, and every time I watch it, I get a lot of memories almost identical to mine. The scene where Pitt accuses Chastain of turning his kids against him was a word for word replication of a conversation I saw with my parents . I haven't exactly considered until recently. Honestly, I think Pitt's performance was Oscar worthy, and considering Moneyball, I think Pitt was snubbed.
The Tree of Life is not a bad film. Sure, I wouldn't call it the best film of all time, but the cinematography and the aimless plot is perfect to bring back childhood memories. Especially the cinematography. The camera always sticks low to the level of the kids, and we perceive what they do.
