To the Wonder

High-Def Digest
16 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Terrence Malick's 'To the Wonder' is a cinematic tone poem consumed with passion and despair. Through beautiful images and stirring music, the film mediates on the wonders and sorrows of love. Despite some minor artifacts, the video transfer is simply breathtaking, and the audio mix is exceptional. Supplements are a little redundant, but there are some welcome insights into the film's style and production.

To the Wonder Blu-ray Review

  • Conclusion: Many quickly pegged To the Wonder as a "lesser" Terrence Malick film, but there's nearly as much here bubbling beneath the surface as there was in The Tree of Life . The nature of love, the love of nature, the silence of God and the beauty of compassion— To the Wonder is alive with meaning and feeling.

Slant Magazine

  • Excerpt: "Newborn" is the first word spoken in Terrence Malick's To the Wonder . Newborn because it's the first film the auteur has made that takes place in the present day. Newborn because he casts Olga Kurylenko as an inheritor of Pocahontas's existential sense of displacement, and lover of a man who's something of a world-builder, in this impressionistic, largely improvised story of a doomed love affair.

To the Wonder Blu-ray Review

  • Conclusion: Director Terrence Malick's latest film isn't easy to like. It is a very bold project that can quickly frustrate those who are used to conventional storytelling. I personally think that it does not have the same aura The Tree of Life does, but then the idea behind it is clearly very deterrent. My advice to you is this: Ignore reading reviews of the film, both positive and negative, see it on Blu-ray, and form your own opinion.

AV Club

  • Excerpt: Watching a Terrence Malick movie means being reminded that we live in nature, among the trees and other animals, with the heavens as a canopy. This should be a given, but it’s something people take entirely for granted—both in the movies and in everyday life. Just as a building blocks out the sun, drama creates its own kind of obstructive architecture, denying the context of the natural world while burrowing down in human conflicts. Though man vs.

  • Conclusion: Less ambitious than The Tree Of Life, To The Wonder remains 100 per cent pure, unadulterated Malick, an absorbing, thoughtful, moving meditation on the things that matter.
