As I thought it might, upon second viewing I upgrade The New World from the B+ I gave it to an A. Sometimes a work of art is such a shock to the system that you need a second exposure to fully realize what is going on. So much of Terrence Malick’s magic is visceral, non-verbal. . .so all I will say is: I really, really like this movie.
