Method in Malick's madness

I get it: England is the new world. Clever! Thanks to Anthony Lane for that little aperçu - it helps prepare us for the shift in perspective from Smith to Pocahontas that I kind of think is the whole idea, and structurally the most confident thing about the movie.

Malick's opus is improving, slightly, in retrospect, but I'm still waiting for a passionate defence of it that actually makes sense...
