3.0 out of 5 stars Probably comes off differently on the big screen..., December 23, 2006
This review is from: The New World (DVD)
I watched this movie on DVD, and that probably made a difference in my experience. With that said, I found this movie very poetic and beautiful, but rather slow moving and in need of editing.

On the plus side, I admire Colin Farrell, who always offers a powerful performance, and newcomer Q'orianka Kilcher was marvelous and has enormous potential for future roles.

On the other hand, while I appreciated the lengths that the cast and production crew went to present an authentic Native American tribe, the director's "noble savages" perspective quickly grew weary, a problem that was compounded by the length of the film.

Probably not the film for everyone, but if you have time and appreciate aesthetics in films, I would recommend watching this movie.

Its the same Malick again I am fed up of his aesthetic for aesthetic films this guy has nothing to say to cultured or not cultured audiences.
He reminds me of the song ''Pretty Vacant'' of the Sex Pistols !!
If you sleep 18 hours every day you can try his films otherwise stay away !

Malick's "Tree of Life" probably isn't your cup of tea either, his aesthetic works for me in that instance, I did get a "Pretty Vacant" vibe from the trailors for "The New World". Who knows?.......I could be wrong, I really think I'll still pass on "The New World."

"fed up OF"? How about the "cultured" "fed up WITH"?

"Pretty vacant," indeed. Enjoy your "Leadership Expert" sleep of 24 hours per day.
