Terrence Malick's 2011 feature is an accomplishment unparalleled in this current decade.
Steve McQueen's unflinching third film never holds back upon one of humanity's greatest tragedies through the eyes of one who lived through the very worst.
Awfully misguided without distinction and horribly overlong. (✯✯)
Looks great, although carries a hokey substance. (✯✯½)
Uses its background and aesthetic to utilize an activist voice for a political climate. (✯✯✯✯✯)
Important one level, frustrating another. (✯✯✯½)
