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.

Brilliant acting and spectacular cinematography/location/costumes/make-up. What buries the pictures zest were the snail-paced storytelling, lack of interesting charaters and a believable romantic angle. Apocalypto was definitely more entertaining since it dealt with tribes as well. The New World may be thought-provoking, its execution and outcome however was not a satisfying.

The story is a reworking of the Ponchanotas tale, essentially a love story with English settlers battling it out with native Americans. It's shot and edited in Malick's trademark style: ie exquisitely beautiful, and is worth seeing for that alone. The performances are excellent and the box office disaster that it became had more to do with poor marketing than any lack of quality.

Aguirre+Braveheart=Unforgetable Craft work

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 ...
