Decoding Malick's 'The Tree of Life'
Very interesting interview with Emanuel "Chivo" Lubezki, the cinematographer on Terrence Malick's mostly Smithville-shot The Tree of Life. He talks about shooting more to convey an emotion than to present a scene and how the camera often stayed off of the actors as they spoke. Fascinating stuff.
If you haven't seen the trailer yet, this explanation puts it very much in focus.
