Do It. The Elemental Cinema of Terrence Malick at LACMA.

One of my most anticipated films of this year has got to be Tree of Life, the new film starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn and directed by Terrence Malick. It already looks to be just another classic Malick film -- gorgeously crafted, beautifully acted and just a masterful film to experience. Malick's become infamous for his long breaks between films, and it's been six years now, but it's pretty evident that the wait will be worth it.

Tree of Life
will be released on May 27th, but in great anticipation, LACMA will be celebrating Malick's work up until then with screenings of all his major past films. Yep, all of them: Badlands, Days of Heaven, The Thin Red Line and The New World. These films, vivid and scenic and atmospheric, were made for the big screen. Do them the justice and see these movies, and get excited about the return of Terrence Malick.

The Elemental Cinema of Terrence Malick takes place from May 12 to May 20 at LACMA, located at 5905 Wilshire Blvd. in Mid-City. Tickets are $10 for each film. Check out the schedule here and buy your tickets now -- they will sell out.
