I think Malick's The New World is the best film I've seen in the past 10 years. I think it has a small, feverishly devoted cult but I guess not many people saw it. .
It was an excellent film. I would rank it over Malick's Badlands but probably not Days of Heaven or the Thin Red Line. It doesn't receive much public support but it's high regarded by critics. It made the top ten in the films of the decade list in Film Comment, which is a survey of critics worldwide.
