new world

I am pretty crap at best-movie lists and end-of-decade summaries but if you got me in an armlock and forced an answer out of me, I would have to admit that Terrence Malick's The New World is my favourite film of the last ten years; one of those transporting experiences which come around very rarely. None of the writeups I've read since have done it any justice, but John Patterson - one of our finest film writers - nailed it on Friday.
