The Moldau/The Tree of Life
It's been in my head since seeing The Tree of Life last night. The Tree of Life a frustrating movie which conflates pretentious kitsch with profundity all too easily. But I can't deny that few movies have ever used classical music as well as this movie did. And no scene moreso than when Malick used The Moldau to evoke the innocence of childhood.
