THE TREE OF LIFE *—It’s hard to accurately describe Terrence Malick’s film. Our colleague Matt comes close in this month’s issue of City Arts, saying it’s, “essentially a story of self-awareness—both that of the Universe (or God) and that of a young boy growing into a man.” I found it profound, affecting, and gorgeous. See this movie.  @   SALE

 

HORRIBLE BOSSES *— It’s Jason Bateman, It’s Always Sunny’s Charlie Day, and SNL All-Star Jason Sudeikis vs. evil bosses Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, and Jennifer Aniston in what multiple reviewers have called Office Space meets Throw Momma From The Train. It's from Seth Gordon, director of the excellent KING OF KONG. Keep your eyes peeled for a Steve Wiebe cameo. @  SALE
