Review | The Tree of Life

Us Rating: **

In this confusing art film, the drama shifts jarringly from the saga of a 1950s Texas family (headed by Brad Pitt) to -- huh? -- a history of the Earth from the Big Bang to the present. The movie's muddled point? To explore and understand the roots of creation. Pretty, but pretentious. (20th Century Fox, $40)
