The Fountain

I sat in the theater alone and watched The Fountain this evening. Although I expect it will be out of theaters by the end of this week, check this movie out if you:

a: think most "blockbusters" exist only as an opiate for the masses
b: have an I.Q. above 130
c: enjoy non-linear cinema


The Fountain is a phenomenal cinematic experience that takes the viewer through a struggle with the core-questions of life, death, and immortality...by way of breathtaking scenes. Say what you will, but director Darren Aronofsky IS the new Stanley Kubrick in this writer's opinion.

I also quite enjoyed this film, though I concede it had some flaws. I think Aranofsky reached for the moon with this picture, and though he fell a bit short, I am very appreciative of his effort to create something unique and thought-provoking. More directors should take similar risks.

Yeah - I didn't like how he wrapped it up as a story and the final nebula/star visuals were a bit corny to me.

I was most appreciative of the complex storyline of the search for the Fountain of Youth literally, physically, and spiritually and making peace with death.

It was profoundly moving and on that level the best film I've seen in quite some time.

I like films that offer hilarious hijinks and include the song "Do You Love Me?"
