From Genevieve Yue’s review at Reverse Shot of Terrence Malick’s new movie, Tree of Life:

Cinematically, [Stan Brakhage's Yggdrasill:  Whose Roots Are Stars in the Human Mind is] one of Tree of Life’s closest arboreal cousins, a kind of film best described as devotional: one that gives us a direct experience of the world, or as Nathaniel Dorsky writes, “an image that is in itself a manifested act of seeing.”
