  1. It is and I wrote up a beautiful and decisive post establishing this very clearly, but I withdrew my sordid prosody in the light of such powerful poetry that is Malick’s majestic cinema.

  2. Lost in the aether, but even so decisive…? How can I argue?

    I have more work to do, anyway. I need to examine how much my hatred of the book feeds my opinion of the movie, even though the movie is only a tiny nod to the book.
