Christopher Nolan and David Fincher Talk Malick and 'The Tree of Life'

If you are unfortunate enough to be among those unfamiliar with the works of Terrence Malick, perhaps high praise from Christopher Nolan (Memento, Inception, The Dark Knight) and David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club, Zodiac, The Social Network) will awaken you to the cinematic treasure trove that is Malick's work.

This promotional featurette for The Tree of Life shows the two director's discussing Malick's work and technique over clips from the film. Nolan's analysis is especially interesting. It's a shame this thing is so short and that the directors don't really discuss The Tree of Life specifically, just Malick generally, though. Hopefully there is more footage of these interviews that will be released in some form (i.e. DVD extras) later.
