Decades in the making, Terrence Malick’s new cosmos documentary Voyage of Time explores the science, power, and sheer beauty of natural phenomena in a way that melds art and science as only Malick can.

If you send out crews and they always come back with something, you should be worried, because you’re after the easy stuff.
