Terrence Malick’s career feels like it has been leading to this opus of a film. The Tree of Life ambitiously covers the history of the universe while focusing on the tale of a family in 1950s Texas. The guys are joined by co-host of the podcast Filmspotting, Josh Larsen, to dissect the greater Christian themes of the film, its approach to non-linear storytelling and, yes, they cover the dinosaurs.
