It's not meant to be suble...its the romantization and a poetical inner reflection of a conservative family in the 50s...

The whole purpose is to sound pretentious...they are questioning their existence all the time evidenced in the voice over lines like "why am I here" and "What is my purpose" and etc...they are close-minded and basic knowledge is out of their reach....but despite that they still ask the same questions that a modern scientist asks today; questioning the meaning of existence and its origins, and no one knows for sure what is behind all of this...only death is for sure.
>>
>>64596397
Surprisingly good. There was even a group of teens in the theatre and they seemed to be overwhelmed by the beauty and flow of the pictures. I remember everybody sitting longer in their seats when the credits rolled than in general and a lot of people seemed to be lost in their own thoughts.

Yeah okay maybe it's not supposed to be subtle but it still has truckload of other issues and it's by far the weakest Malick film I've seen so far.

I don't know how you missed clear messages of Interconnectedness of life on Earth and the experiences and implications of being a living thing and a human being.

Quite literally, a lot is being said without being said at all. The film is a true testament to the human condition and the very act of being alive in a seemingly chaotic universe on one small, beautiful canvas.

The Altruistic Dinosaurs are essential argument for his belief in that it shows the first consciousness and birth of good will.

It's also essential to understand how his argument is flawed on literally every level withw hat we know about animals of today and past.

It's a retarded brainfart that's what it is.
>>
>>64601987
All Abrahamic religions are at odds with each other, in Judaism there is no real notion of heaven which renders the last scene in the film incompatible with this belief, in Islam portraying God in any way is not allowed in any way.
The movie depicts God in a few scenes as ethereal beams of lights.

The movie is clearly rooted in Christianity.

Spirituality =/= Theism.

Are you fucking kidding me? You took the scene of the carnivorous dinosaur leaving the herbivorous dinosaur alone as "Woah, that dinosaur thought about the situation for a second and chose not to eat him. I guess Malik is implying he's conscious." ?

>The Book of Job is specifically about a man undying love of God in the face of hardships

>[on screen, unspoken] "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the Earth, when the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?" Job 38:4,7

The film starts with this quote. The parents have lost a son. They see themselves as unjustly punished. The mother literally questions god about why he did this to her in the voice-over.

Job in the bible is a good man. He is however endlessly put through suffering. He asks god why he must go through such hardships. God confronts him and literally tells him that he is just a man and cannot comprehend the universe, (the quote above with which the movie opens). The vastness of it is too much for a simple man to ever understand. This is also mirrored in the film with the 'Lacrimosa' scene. You see the vastness of the universe, and suddenly the family seems insignificant.

The ending shows the mother accepting God.

There is obviously much more going on. This is a very bare bones analysis.
>>
>>64602312
What's your point?
It's factual that the scene was supposed to show the inception of consciousness, no one is arguing that this is what canonically happened in the history of evolution.

Also it's evident that this isn't meant to be understood in a literal sense.

It's also factual that animals don't have to be conscious to follow their instincts and reject a meal if they're already. I don't see how you find any of this factual.

>>64602405
I don't think he was implying the consciousness in a dinosaur at all, but whatever you each their own.

>Then why don't you go and lie to a fucking snake pit

>creation scene

What are you talking about? There was no creation scene. There was merely a seeing the universe through the eyes of God scene.

Confirmed for not getting the film.
>>
>>64602512
Again, no one is saying this is what happened during the inception of consciousness in the canon of evolution in real life.
It is factual however that the scene within the movie was supposed to signify the moment when consciousness was developed by living beings on this planet (it's factual because people who worked on the film said this), whether you're meant to understand this to be a literal recollection of history or if it's a metaphor of some kind is up to you, it seems rather obvious that it's the latter though.
>>
Why does Reddit hate Tree of Life so much? Is it because they're all fedoras and can't accept God into their hearts?
>>
>>64602557
If he was legitimately implying consciousness in a dinosaur then yeah, the guy is absolutely wrong. I'd defending the scene the way it was shown to me, a random fuck off dinosaur not eating another dinosaur because he wasn't hungry.

>>64602608
>no one is saying this is what happened during the inception of consciousness in the canon of evolution in real life

Neither am I. All I'm saying is I look at this from a non-theological viewpoint and saw it quite literally as animals being animals.

As a scholar of Terry I'll clear some things up. The dinosaur scene's significance is that it was the first time in the universe that mercy was shown, a deeply Christian sentiment. The film is based off the book of Job, but for Malick spirituality is king. The teachings of Christ are just as important, though. He sides with Kierkegaard when concerning the crowd and Christendom.

The Tree of Life isn't some autistic abstraction about religion. It's about the characters and their flaws, sin, and the triumph of humanity as a whole. The ending is obviously about Heaven, but transcendence and the final understanding of one another is the true sentiment. God bless, and strive to be good to one another.

That's fine and dandy and everything, but it's still not going to change the way I look at the scene.

I'd agree with the statement that it was the "birth of compassion" more than the birth of consciousness in this dinosaur because that's how I originally viewed the scene. The birth of compassion from an unconscious and obviously uncompassionate creature.

I happen to be someone that believes when you create a piece of art and present it to the world you kind of unintentionally forfeit the right to tell people what they're right and wrong about.

I think one of the main points of artistic value is the fact it doesn't have to be totally explained for two different people with two different viewpoints to enjoy it. Terry can have his (wrong) meaning, I'm quite happy with mine.
