Tool's music powers this wonderful mindtrip involving the creation and destruction of the universe. Perfectly timing the beautiful imagery to the guitar heavy track, neglify presents a piece that reaches out and touches all the feelings. I'd have preferred spending an incy bit more time on earth and mammal creation which we quickly zip through.
If you ever wanted to feel how small you really are and wondrously big the universe is, look no further.
From the DVD, Neglify Shorts Vol 1. An excellent distillation of Malick’s Tree Of Life. The original film is a so-called masterpiece. Omit the phrase “so-called” and you have Neg’s Q.
Video: 720 X 480p MPEG. Good resolution throughout. Nothing weird or odd.
Audio: 2 Channel AC3, 192 Kbps. Creative use of an obscure Tool song that flows extremely well with the visuals.
Enjoyment: Much as I admire Malick, I found this movie a pretentious snooze. Neg’s Q is a trippy light show. Don’t pay attention to his suggestion either. Watching it 2 times - watch it 2 dozen! I wish this was on IMAX.
Wowsers. Music went beautifully with the imagery and this is a must watch for anyone who is a fan of Tool. I will say that unlike some, I am not a fan of the "hidden" track, but it works very well the way it is used here.
