“Lacking narrative, lacking drama, lacking characters, Voyage of Time can be easily assimilated to the realm of experimental film. But Malick, a figure of Hollywood and off-Hollywood, reaches for the contemplative realms with a sense of power. As an experiment, the film is an expensive one; it has more in common with the science of the laboratory that Malick shows than it does with the tinkering of the lonely inventor or the esotericism of the isolated artist. Its philosophical contemplation embodies the majesty and the complexity of the work at hand; its matériel matches the mighty social forces he considers. It’s not a movie like Malick’s other films, but it’s as furiously personal as the others.”
