Lists are subjective. That's the joy of them, to some degree -- you get to see the tastes of others, and hopefully pick up a few tips for things you may have overlooked. And you're never going to find a list that you agree with 100%, particularly when the stakes are bigger -- lists of 'greatest films' or 'greatest directors' are a veritable minefield of disputes and feuds. But that doesn't change the fact that some lists are just dumb.

Also Reveals That Terrence Malick Consulted With NASA For Footage Of The CosmosWith a little more than four months to go before its release, the details about Terrence Malick’s long-awaited “The Tree of Life” are continuing to trickle out bit by bit. The film centers on a father in the 1950s (Brad Pitt) and his son Jack (Sean Penn), now grown up, in the present day as they deal with the residue of their difficult relationship. We’ve been watching that beautiful trailer more than we’d care to admit and we’re starting to feel those images burned onto our brains. The man responsible for creating those images, Emanuel "Chivo" Lubezki, (ace cinematographer for “Children Of Men”, “The New World”), spoke to the LA Times about the film, and revealed Malick's unorthodox approach to shooting the film.

Fuck "Thor," "Cowboys & Aliens," "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and whatever other geek movie trailer countdown that happened this month. This is the trailer we've been dying to see ever since it started unspooling in front of "Black Swan," and for us, if the movie news year ended right here that would be fine with us.

Also Scoring Chris Weitz's 'The Gardener'So we are just over five months away from the likely Cannes debut and theatrical release of Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life." The film, pretty much the closest thing the arthouse world will ever get to a blockbuster, stars heavyweights Brad Pitt and Sean Penn in a decades-spanning tale about a father/son relationship and also the mysteries of the universe. The trailer for the film is currently in theaters playing in front of "Black Swan" but don't expect it go online anytime soon as Fox Searchlight plans to piecemeal stills and info about the project in the run-up to the release. So with that in mind, we'll take whatever info we can and the latest bit of news comes from the film's composer, Playlist favorite Alexandre Desplat.

After what amounts to about two years of waiting or more, cinephiles are drooling in anticipation at finally receiving their first look at Terrence Malick's long-gestating drama, "The Tree Of Life" starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn and they're getting it this Friday when the Fox Searchlight picture's trailer debuts before Darren Aronofsky's psycho-horror ballet, "Black Swan" (it's called corporate synergy). However, we're getting a small taste now. The L.A. Times has been given a peek at the trailer in advance and they say the footage, "exceed expectations."

This is a story we hemmed and hawed on doing mostly because it seems like a sucker punch to gut the details on Terrence Malick's next film, "The Burial." And while the info is now making the rounds, for all the extensive plotting revealed, Malick has never been one to stick directly to a script, and the weightier thematic issues and the tone and tenor of the finished work often emerges throughout the editing process. So for everything that is mentioned here, how the final product is shaped probably isn't best described by simple plot beats. But needless to say, if you don't want to know anything about the film stop reading here. Seriously.

It's hard to believe after such a long wait, but Terrence Malick's "The Tree Of Life" will hit theaters in about six months. Really. And while we probably won't see a "Tree Of Life" Tuesdays marketing campaign modeled after Disney's approach to "Tron: Legacy," we won't have to wait too long to get our first look at the film.
