Terrence Malick United States, 2005

ig_____or's rating of the film The New World

Nothing less than epic and triumphant, this is one of those movies one can't simply put into words. The cinematography is ravishing, and so is the whole score. The plot and the actors are also captivating and, in good Malick style, the voice-overs add something to them that, if it was merely spoken, would lose its dimension. Even standing at almost 3 hours, I would say that the extended cut is completely worth it.
