Must Watch: Chris Nolan, David Fincher in a 'Tree of Life' Featurette
Masters talking about masters. Fox Searchlight has just debuted a fantastic new featurette over on Apple for Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life, which is already playing in art house theaters nationwide. Since they couldn't get the reclusive Terrence Malick himself in front of a camera, they got two other notoriously hard-to-find legendary directors instead: David Fincher and Christopher Nolan. Yes, this is awesome! The two of them talk about how Malick has inspired them and their love for the way he shot Tree of Life, which is indeed a gorgeous film. This is definitely the convincing needed to go see this while it's in theaters!

From Terrence Malick, the acclaimed director of such classic films as Badlands, Days of Heaven and The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life is the impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 50's. It follows the life journey of eldest son Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years (Penn) as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father. Jack, as an adult, finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking out answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith. Through Malick's images we see how both brute nature and spiritual grace shape not only our lives as individuals and families, but all life. Fox Searchlight is bringing Tree of Life to theaters starting May 27th.
