What do people see in Carey Mulligan? (Still pissed that she was cast in Drive.) Her blandness makes her co-stars appear more dynamic. Enough about Mulligan. Michael Fassbender's portrayal of a sex addict is fascinating, but there's not much beneath the surface. Arty, dark.
Alexander Payne is a master of the dramedy, and this film has the right balance of humor and sorrow, and what's not to love about George Clooney, or Hawaii?
Elizabeth Olsen is fabulous as a young woman struggling to escape the physical and mental clutches of a violent cult and it's Manson-esque leader played by John Hawkes. Psychological story told in flashback: and it's open-ended. Creepy good!
Jared Hess is a genius and how this gem slipped by me, I don't know. Funny, original: loved it!

Love love this movie. Funny, well-written family drama / comedy with high school wrestling.

Can't remember the last "adult" film I saw in a theater. There's so much to say about Tree of Life, and it's impossible to be objective as I had the great fortune to work on The Thin Red Line. To any Terrence Malick detractors, I encourage you to look at the evolution of his films, and compare them to other directors from the American New Wave movement. It's stunning, and I'm amazed and grateful that an experimental film can be made and distributed in Hollywood.
How long is this Man-Child obsession going to last? And in how many movies will Ed Helms portray a character in a doomed relationship who falls in love with a blond prostitute? Not many laugh out loud moments, a slight quirky film with John C. Reilly: so therefore you must see it.

James Franco is great, and director Danny Boyle keeps us entertained and spellbound.

I love tough female characters, and this movie is full of them. Great performances, especially from Sam Rockwell who transforms himself from a regular guy to a hardened convict.
Inspiring, based on a true story, captivating, uplifting. No Oscar nominations? ¿Por qué?
