Gushing Over ‘The Tree Of Life’ Extended Cut From Criterion [Home Video Highlights]


Welcome to a new edition of The Playlist Podcast, a discussion about film news and other film and television related items. Erik from AYT here, and on this episode I’m joined by Over/Under Movies creator Oktay Ege Kozak. On this episode, we put on our Blu-ray hats and bust out another Home Video Highlights discussion. And for a good reason, as Criterion recently put out a gorgeous copy of Terrence Malick‘s “The Tree of Life,” complete with lots of extras and a previously unreleased extended cut that adds some 50 minutes to the film.

Is it possible that Malick has improved on his theatrical cut? Thankfully, the release comes with both versions. There’s a lot to appreciate and take in with this one, so give a listen and let us know what you think. Also, make sure to check also check out this excellent breakdown of the extended cut from Playlist Editor-in-Chief Rodrigo Perez.

We’re not saying that Terrence Malick will endlessly narrate your life in real time by casting your friends and family to randomly utter quiet ruminations on the way of nature or grace if you don’t subscribe, but we’re not *not* saying that, either.

As always, thanks for listening!
