Editor’s Note: In case the Mayans were right and the apocalypse is happening, well, you probably wouldn’t be reading this post. Now I feel that this whole editor’s note is useless.
If I had to pick my most anticipated movie for 2013, it would undoubtedly be Terrance Malick’s new movie To The Wonder. I was an enormous fan of The Tree of Life and chose it as the best film of 2011. Malick is mostly known for having his films come out sporadically, so it’s a surprise to see To The Wonder come out so quickly. But regardless, it looks fantastic.
The trailer does have many of Malick’s trademarks, with his beautiful shots of scenery and close ups of characters. He’s the only director I can think of who I would compare to a romantic painter. It’s worth the price for me just to go to see the imagery.
To The Wonder is sure to be polarizing like The Tree of Life, and it’s received a wide variety of responses. Regardless, I can’t wait to see this one,
