Terrence Malik's films: The Tree of Life, and To the Wonder

Just finished Terrence Malik's film, To the Wonder, and it was beautiful.  Slow.  But it all comes together.  Very little dialogue: what is important is the acting, the editing of the film, how the various characters all reveal meaning toward the end.  Its, faith, hope.  Here is a beautiful monologue, by the priest who questions his own faith, but somehow holds on.

Of course, The Tree of Life is Malik's greatest film.  Absolutely beautiful.
