"To the Wonder" is as unpretentious and experimental as any film I've come to expect from Terrence Malick, but this portrait of a marriage sadly finds the visionary director at his most cinematically underwhelming.

Terrance Malick's To the Wonder is big and lovely, but unremarkable. His use of establishing mood and his gorgeous cinematography are all wonderfully put on display here, but without a compelling narrative, interesting characters, and enriching themes, the movie is unfortunately a failing. Javier Bardem is in this movie for some reason, playing a priest who we get to know very little about, and the wonderful talents of Ben Affleck and Rachel McAdams is utterly wasted. Unlike many of Malick's previous pictures, To the Wonder will not inspire deep discussions nor will it inspire multiple viewings. It's watchable for the cinematography, but not much else. 2/4

‘To The Wonder’ is a movie directed and written by Terrence Malick. However the movie will always be known to me as Roger Ebert's final review. His points are clear and thought-provoking, even if I don’t always agree with him. I loved his take on Malick and I bet Malick would have as well. So this gave me more of a vivacious viewing experience.
While I wouldn’t recommend it to a conventional audience, as it lacks any structure that people who haven’t be exposed to his work would find insufferable. And it’s something that I can’t see myself watching again, but it’s a movie that explains nothing, yet shows everything.
A draining, but rewarding experience. When I mean …
