I saw Tree of Life a few weeks ago, and like just about everyone else who's seen it who isn't completely full of shit, I have absolutely no idea what to say about the film, so we'll see how writing that review goes. Anyway, none of that matters because the best thing ever written about Terrence Malick is now online:
The Tree of Life director Terrence Malick is reportedly a huge fan of Zoolander and regularly quotes it to friends.
Ben Stiller once dressed up as his dim-witted fashion model Derek Zoolander to record a birthday message for the Oscar-nominated Thin Red Line filmmaker, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Production designer Jack Fisk, who has worked on all of Malick's films, said: "I think Zoolander is one of Terry's favorite movies ever. He watches it all the time, and he likes quoting it."
