If Terrence Malick was more of an extrovert – I’m sure he would publicly express pride towards this new music video. But, he’s a busy guy juggling production on the 5+ movies that somehow involve Austin music festivals.
The brand new Tree of Life style video works perfectly for Austin’s post-rock superheroes Explosions in the Sky! Heck, this video almost achieves the same sentiment as one of the top art house movie featuring dinosaurs of 2011! It’s no wonder because the video was directed by Malick’s cinematographer from Tree of Life Peter Simonite alongside Annie Gunn. Both are well known in Austin and beyond for being hotshots behind the lens and their meticulous style lends itself perfectly to the West Texas soft-loud-soft gods!
Featuring miniature glimpses into the Wonder Years era suburbs, plenty of cute kids and phantom camera technology, the music video for Postcard From 1952 from Take Care, Take Care, Take Care goes literal with a song without lyrics by showing fragments (or postcards- get it?!) from a different time. If you pick up this album on vinyl you are in for a treat! The packaging is sick.
Water just looks cooler in slow motion. Smoke just looks cooler in slow motion. And so on and so on and so on. Look closely and you’ll be rewarded with a dog wearing glasses. I’d embed it here but the Huff Po has an exclusive thingy that won’t let me. Check it out HERE! Enjoy!
