Movie Review: To The Wonder

A harrowing look at the formation and eventual crumbling of a relationship.

Told by Terrence Malick as a sort of visual poetry, this is a beautifully shot film that is in no way an orthodox romance or drama. Then again none of Malick's films are truly straightforward affairs.

As with most of his recent films, movement is key. These characters are always moving throughout the frame and to match that, the camera constantly moves as well.

To The Wonder may not be his best film but it is certainly a good one. It's great that Malick is making films at such a pace these days and not taking 20 year breaks between films.

An "art-house" romance film from a man with an eye for the little things.
