Ahh, Tree of Life. I got in an argument recently with someone trying to explain the movie to me. I told her that if it needed to be explained – I wasn’t interested – and not changing my mind from when I saw it – and hated it – in 2011 – and it made my Ten Worst list for that year. One word: dinosaurs.
