    I would have thought that classical music was one of the most “orderly” styles of music, practically the pole which free jazz sets as its opposite. I also thought Pitt’s more cynical character would also be more likely to endorse breaking rules to get ahead, as opposed to Chastain’s “way of grace” accepting the constraints we encounter in life. After all, she learned her philosophy from nuns!

    I preferred Tree of Life to Thin Red Line precisely because there was nothing but Malickian musings. In Thin Red Line always seemed to be interrupting a war film that should have been directed by anyone but Malick. Here they were the focus rather than the distraction, and in that context it’s more understandable why they would receive such focus.
