The Sea of Trees (2015)

Gus Van Sant

Patience is a virtue in this sea
For the plot to unfold takes an eternity
Under duress, Arthur (Matthew McConaughey) boards a plane to Japan
And soon finds himself helping an injured man,
But in this forest nothing is as it seems,
Darkness and confusion, dovetail with dreams,
Why is he there, and who is this other man?
It is your task (poor viewer) to try to understand.
Van Sant takes a chance, but the pace is chore,
A lot of of very little – I’m guessing less is more?
But it just might leave you thinking, as timelines collide,
When the movie neatly wraps up, an a-ha moment on the side.

You Found It!

If the wind will not serve, take to the oars.
