From Cannes, film contribuor Milos Stehlik reacts to Terrence Malick's latest project and the Strauss-Kahn arrest

As the title would indicate, Terrence Malick’s new film, The Tree of Life, is something of an epic. The reclusive director’s latest offering, starring Brad Pitt, has been one of the most anticipated films at the Cannes Film Festival.

Film contributor Milos Stehik has seen, The Tree of Life, and he’s seen firsthand the French reaction to the arrest of Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Head of the International Monetary Fund and the top contender to lead France’s Socialist party into the next elections, Strauss-Kahn is being held without bail in New York City for the sexual assault of a hotel employee last weekend.

Milos discusses the Malick film and what people in Cannes are saying about the Strauss-Kahn controversy.
