Terrance Malik salvages the tale of John Smith and Pocahontas, and Native American relations with English settlers from the naive outlooks of Disney and mainstream Hollywood. "The New World" is fascinating stuff. It's one of this director's most beautiful features and also one of his easiest to comprehend.

After finishing "The New World", I was lost with words. Not because the film is bad or anything. But, well...oh damn. It's been awhile since a movie moved me like this did. With gorgeous landscapes and the undiscovered country had a sense of adventure to it. Visually captivating and a emotionally rich film. This is Terrence Malick at his best. The only director out there that knows and understands the human soul. And Lubezki is the man that presents his vision in the most unique way. Seriously, those two are dynamite. "The New World" has some many things going on that you can't keep up with it. Not to mention it's 3 hours long and I only found that out after it was over. And quite honestly, I didn't care.

Wonderful movie, very underrated in my opinion. Don't let the Pocahontas thing scare you. Watch it!
Review I made when I saw it:
Yes... those... "men", that come with they ships, they deceases. They guns. Those, that come here to "discover"...
Discover. Oh yes, because those... "non-christians", didn't discovered nothing, did they? They, just were born there.
Insulting. So, there comes the occident. The East. With they "wisdom". And they fortresses... and the mirrors.
Yes, because they gave to the natives mirrors for trading.
So, this what happened. The "conquest" of the wild...savage people of ancient times it's very well treated and showed in the movie.
Speaking of the movie. Would you like to see Michael Blake's script, directed by Mel Gibson …
