Tree of Life HOW-TO Guide on Youtube

As Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life,” which opened in major cities at the end of last month, is getting ready for its nationwide rollout, a how-to featurette has been released by distributor Fox Searchlight Pictures in the hopes that it will help shepherd the meditative film across the dusty trails that await. Because in order for a movie to make money, as Mike Fleming of Deadline New York reports, it needs to connect with a young audience and as anyone who’s seen “The Tree of Life” knows, this is a head-scratching challenge for the distributor.

Filmmakers Chris Nolan and David Fincher, who are both self-avowed Malick proteges, talk up the filmmaker and his movie in interviews included in the featurette.
