I saw it. It may be one of the weirdest movies I have ever watched. It will definitely turn most people off. I had to go downtown to the Broadway to see it since it’s not in wide general release. It’s a polarizer, some people will like it (for me I tolerated it), many people will hate it. The story doesn’t flow chronologically, it jumps around. It’s especially difficult to watch if you have had a family member die. The subject matter is about a son that is killed at 19 and they reconstruct his childhood lifetime experiences many of which I could relate to. There is a lot of room for interpretation of this film. I’m not sure I get all that was being conveyed. Part of the film seems like a visual documentary on the creation of the universe and evolution. The other part is a drama about a family and their 3 boys, one that dies at the beginning of the film.

I suspect that the movie looks at life and religion from a pantheist perspective.

This looks interesting.
