So, it's a 50 minute longer cut now.

I've been waiting a long time for this news. The Tree of Life is already early favorite for the best film of the decade, so this coming now 7-8 years after the release, it's time. I just watched it for the first time in a while a few weeks ago after watching 2001... not only does it hold up to time, but also to Kubrick's masterpiece as a nice double feature.

I hope the theatrical cut gets released as well with it for completist sake.

What I would want to know is if Criterion will be allowed access to only this new extended cut of ToL or will the original Director's Cut be also included in their release?

From the Variety article:
Quote:
“Terry doesn’t see this as a director’s cut,” says Criterion president Peter Becker, who insists that the 139-minute theatrical version is the official “director’s cut” and remains the centerpiece of the Blu-Ray edition. “It’s a fresh view of the film that has a different rhythm and a different balance.

You must have missed the group announcement we did just recently that all film is now subjective. This is a brand new concept that will take some time to catch on, don’t worry Ryandj you will get there if you just keep working at it.

Don't think it's the best (need to rewatch it), but I think I have it at [EDIT: #2].
Top 15 | Aliens | Amadeus | Annie Hall | Casablanca | Casino Royale | Die Hard | Fargo | The Godfather, Part II | Goodfellas | The Lord of the Rings | Raiders of the Lost Ark | The Silence of the Lambs | Star Wars | Unforgiven | Zodiac | 2018 Movie Ratings | Top 30 of the 2010s (so far)

Haven't seen many films from 2010 and onwards but I wouldn't have The Tree of Life at the top out of the few I've seen. I'd rank films like Boyhood, Nightcrawler,
The Witch, Inherent Vice and Killer Joe higher than The Tree of Life which is a good film but doesn't deserve the comparisons to masterworks such as Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and the like.

However, I'm still very interested to see what new footage will be included in this upcoming cut of the film.

I can't comment myself, as I've yet to watch it, but I've heard nothing but good things about it.
”Always leave boiled rice out for mice and keep lamps dark out of pity for moths.” The ancients had this sort of concern, and it’s really the whole point of life, generation after generation. Without it, one can only be called a blockheaded carcass. - H.Z.

To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by scripture. - T.P.

Has anyone found a review that actually talks about the differences between the Extended and Theatrical. The review on this site and also from The Digital Bits are written as if the reviewer never even watched the Extended version, just mentions that it is a "special feature".

These reviews are such non ‘reviews’ if they don’t even discussing anything about the content of the extended version. Even just a few sentences would be useful.
