A good movie with an astounding lead performance


Rod Lott
You should see "Jolene," not because it's an excellent movie (which it isn't) or because it breaks new ground (which it doesn't).

The Tree of Life

Terrence Malick’s ‘The Tree of Life’ is destined to frustrate and bewilder — in a word, it’s amazing.


Phil Bacharach
For a vast understatement, let’s say “The Tree of Life” is an atypical summer movie.

Take Shelter

Your forecast for ‘Take Shelter’: sustained tension with a 100 percent chance of palpable unease. Armpit precipitation possible.


Rod Lott
Rain the color and viscosity of fluids found in barrels at Jiffy Lube falls from the sky in the opening moments of “Take Shelter,” serving as a dark harbinger of things to come. Right out of the gate, this act of weird weather alerts the audience that something bad is going to happen, and the calm before the storm will be anything but serene.

Tots entertainment


Gazette staff
If Terrence Malick’s movies are anything, they’re an absolute pleasure to look at. In such films as Badlands, The Thin Red Line and The Tree of Life, the acclaimed director, who was raised in northern Oklahoma, has demonstrated a gift for extracting beauty from the most unexpected places (i.e. cornfields, combat zones, um ... dinosaurs).
