The Theme of Grief in Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life – An Essay in Catapult Magazine – The Book of Job and the Tree of Life

The still above is from one of my favorite shots from a movie packed with hundreds of stunning shots. In the most recent issue of Catapult Magazine entitled “The Dying of the Light,” I present a piece touching on the theme of grief in Terrence Malick’s movie The Tree of Life. It is more of an essay than a review. If you have not seen the film, this piece could serve as a useful guide to help you navigate its beautiful but challenging waters or else it might serve as a prompt for post-viewing reflection.
