* SpiritualAntithesis: ''Film/{{Melancholia}}'' is regarded as this, to the point where it gained the status as this movie's [[DuelingMovies rival]]. As ''The Tree of Life'' concerns about the correlation of [[HumansAreSpecial humanity's empathy]] to the creation of the universe, ''Melancholia'' concerns about the correlation of [[HumansAreBastards humanity's horrible side]] to the [[ApocalypseHow end of the universe]]. Both being arthouse films with several shots of the universe with special effects didn't help.

* AwardSnub: Its Best Picture and Best Director nominations were a pleasant surprise, but the lack of a Best Supporting Actor nomination for BradPitt is a bit of a shame. The lack of nomination for Best Visual Effects was even more incomprehensible.

* CriticalDissonance: Egads. Despite winning the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011 and being one of the most well received films of that year by critics, it also earned a significant backlash from mainstream audiences. Fro example, the WebSite/RottenTomatoes score on the audience's side is barely at 60% while critics is at a very healthy 84%. General consensus on the negative side of the spectrum seems to be that the film is pretentious and deliberately incomprehensible, attempting to lend gravity on a cosmic scale to earthly subjects that many consider almost inherently boring.

* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Awesome doesn't even come close to describing it. Douglas Trumbull, VFX artist from ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' was dragged out of retirement because Malick didn't like what modern CGI artists were doing (or more accurately: modern CGI[[note]] although the Nature and Astral Realms were realized through this method via PrimeFocus and Creator/DoubleNegativeVFX respectively[[/note]]). Even Creator/BradJones, who spent over a half hour bashing the film, thought the visuals were flawless.
