Trivia

While the narrative of the film is set in Los Angeles, California and Las Vegas, Nevada, there are at least some shots from locations outside the USA. For example in the Las Vegas sequence there are a few shots from modern architecture in Berlin, Germany. These images are integrated in a way, that it seems as if those locations were in fact in Las Vegas, but they are not: The unique large glass dome at the very top of the Reichstag in Berlin is clearly identifiable in one shot. In another shot you can see a typical Berlin S-Bahn train drive away. This footage was probably shot by Terrence Malick on one of his reported trips to the Berlin International Film Festival or by a second unit. There are probably more visuals from around the world organically integrated into the footage shot in the USA. See more »

A true poem
14 February 2016 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I won't mislead anyone. This movie is a tough watch if you don't like movie as a form of art and poetry. This movie requires you to be open-minded, philosophically inclined and love good cinematography and music.

Malick once again put me in a hypnotic state of trance while watching this film. He keeps on going against conventional movie making. His style is hypnotic and gorgeous.

What I took away after and while watching this movie is that it is a observational piece on human behavior. It made me realize how crazy the human race is. The way we enjoy entertainment, treat our women and live our lives. It's all a really surreal thing for a species to do.

Apart from the plot, this movie is mesmerizing and extremely relaxing to watch. The soundtrack is trippy and hypnotic as always and Malick is really settling on a certain (like it or hate it) style of filmmaking. It's very personal whether you like his films or not. To me personally his films are wonderful observational pieces of art that should be stored and preserver for future generations to reflect upon.

His films are also really great material to watch when you're high on psychedelics ;)
