I'm surprised at the winner but now I want to see it even more.
We're dying to see this too! Terrence Malick is a force to be reckon with in cinema. We think he is one of the few American directors who can steer the country towards quality fare. He gives tremendous credibility and importance to American cinema. With Brad Pitt and Sean Penn in the mix, this is definitely a must-see! Thank you guys for swinging by and dropping words.
