Genius piece of art-film by one of the most respected directors in film history. The movie is not fast paced, so it can be hard for some folks who enjoy Hollywoody type fare. By many people, including me, one of the top movies of the 21st century (thus far). This film was on Roger Ebert's top 10 list of his greatest films.

IF the movie had stayed with the main story line and did not try to become Fantasia, I would have liked it much better.

There is a sequence in the first hour of the movie of sights and sounds pertaining to the movement, water flowing, stars, you name it! That lasts for at least 20 minutes maybe more as I lost count. After about 10 minutes of beautiful, but to me senseless, scenes without actors I gave up and used the fast-forward on my control.

Considering the movie starts (more or less) with a death and drags relentlessly until and including and after the 20+ minute scenery montage, the actors...both adult and children...are flawless in their portrayal of flawed characters in what appears to be the 50's & 60's.

There is no fault to be found with Jessica Chastain or Brad Pitt other than I wish they had spoken up to the director about his flights of fancy.

The scenes in the more current time period with Sean Penn (the grown version of the eldest son) are a muddle as well.

Thank goodness for least it only cost me a little over a dollar.
