Twitter Capsule: Boymanisqatsi. A tiresome, vacuous meander, its roving eye incongruous to its static, narrow, disengaged worldview.

VOR:   Nobody else can make a real Malick movie, despite the many who try. Including, lately, Terrence Malick. I found this stale and absurd, but I suppose we owe it attention.
