Skip "The Tree of Life"

The Tree of Life is the most pretentious film I've ever seen.

It's like a Carl Sagan visually-pleasing special on the creation of the Universe but, instead of an informative and delightfully entertaining narration, presented with a soundtrack that can only be described as "Brian Eno does Brahms and Puccini."

Instead of any kind of plot to allow us to feel something we see only stretched metaphors and painful allegories informed by acid trips to the observatory interspersed by whining nostalgia for a hard-luck childhood.
