Brad Pitt Wants His Son To Hit Him As Hard As He Can

The marketing wizards behind Terrence Malick‘s Tree of Life (premiering soon at Cannes) certainly know how to build buzz. Step one: Make a movie that is in all likelihood a cinematic masterpiece. Step two: Take a really long time to do so. Step three: Release images from the movie that contain dinosaurs. Step four: Release a clip of Brad Pitt getting his “Boy Fights” on.

As you may have guessed, this clip pertains to step four. It’s a good clip, although it lacks the visual resplendosity (my word) of the trailer – it’s basically just a disturbingly realistic depiction of a borderline-abusive father played by Brad Pitt bullying his son, who presumably grows up to be Sean Penn. Or maybe he grows up to be Terrence Malick? (Huffington Post)
