{ To The Wonder (2013) | Terrence Malick }

I went to the premiere last night of Terrence Malick’s new movie To The Wonder and have not stop thinking about it. The film puzzled me to frustration, while mesmerizing me to the point of awe. Again, Malick delivers a cinematic experience creating a unique meditation on love and human connection. It felt as if I was watching the collective dream of the film’s characters – ethereal, beautiful, meandering, inexplicable.
