i know people tend to either really like it or really don't, and i can understand how it can hit you either way. but i tend to enjoy malick's rare movies, and this is no exception.
I just couldn't seperate the family story from the creation story and that part (along with all the whispering) just ruined it for me. I can see how there coule be some emotional connection, I'm just not at that part of my life I guess so it missed for me. Thanks for your response.
