Terrence Malick’s new film, The Tree of Life, has had rumours about its release date going around for months on end. It was due at Cannes…then at Venice or Toronto. None of these rumours came to be. More recently there was hope that it could be sneaked out in time for award season, however, this seems fairly unlikely now, even though distributer Fox Searchlight today announced that they have picked up the rights for the movie. Instead, it seems that The Tree of Life will not be out until late 2011, if, as expected, they are hoping it will bring in some Oscars when it is finally released.

This all comes just days after early viewings of the film compared it to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, and its grand scale, with a rumoured three-hour cut doing the rounds, suggests that it is pretty much all complete anyway. This however, does mean that it could even get a showing at next year’s Cannes Film Festival, in the hope of a slow build up to award season, rather than the late 2011 release. This would seem to make sense, seeing how his previous work, The New World, was ignored by the Academy last time, and they may rather hope for a slow build up.

The Tree of Life, starring Brad Pitt, Sean Penn and Jessica Chastain, is a story described as a 1950s period piece, which also has been described as being completely fresh, as well as including scenes of prehistoric Earth. This although has also been claimed as being part of a companion piece filmed for a separate IMAX specific project. It seems now, that all that can be done is to wait and see.

Just a heads up to readers in the NYC metropolitan area: there are multiple festivals showing at Symphony Space on the upper west side.  For those unfamiliar with Symphony Space, it hosts artistic events in the music, literature, dance, theater and film fields.  Their programs cater to all kinds of people, be you high art connoisseur or layman there is something for you.  Also they run programs designed for the whole family including flicks that are youth appropriate, kid-oriented bands and conversations with authors of children’s literature.  I highly recommend this place to everyone.

"Stupid People!"

Plan 9 From Outer Space is a very, very special film. It is the creation of a very, very special film maker. Directed, produced and written by the legend himself, Ed Wood, it is as good…or as bad… as you ever imagined. (more…)
