    The Fountain is a cool movie with some nice visual touches, but I just didn't care for it. Prisoners really ruined serious Hugh Jackman for me, and Rachel Weisz's Queen of Spain sounded a lot like Queen Amidala - not a comparison you should be going for. I know I haven't given Darren Aronofsky a fair shake, as I've only seen this and Noah, so I should check out his earlier stuff tout de suite.

    I can't believe Warner Bros. released this in 2006. Big studios don't release movies like this anymore, right? Have movies gotten more shit in not even ten years? Is dog reel thang?

    Conquistador Hugh Jackman stabs the tree of life, and drops some of it's plentiful sauce on the ground which causes a bunch of Pee-wee's Playhouse flowers to explode from the Jim Henson dimension where they once nested. In awe, Captain Jackman Sparrow rubs sum uh dat juice on…

    Aronofsky's underrated, psycadelic masterpiece. Rich & thought provoking beyond belief.

    I am so so glad I still loved this. This is the first Aronofsky that I have rewatched and I felt very rewarded for doing so. I'm certainly a very different person, writer, and watcher since first viewing this, and I'm glad Past Vic was smart enough to latch onto this.

    To be fair, I felt like the first 20 minutes or so were a little draggy this time around. It seemed to delve into the cross-time surreal montages before…

    The Fountain is an ambitious and multi-layered film that looks at several things, but as the centre of the film is the story of a young woman dying and her husband trying desperately to save her. This is Darren Aronofsky's most divisive film, and it's easy to understand that given the abstract narrative and weirder elements of the film (though to be fair, I found this a little more "normal" than I expected it to be). I admire the ambition…

    The ambiguity of this film works so well in its favour, more so then most other films. The answers are not necessary, this majestic journey through time is entirely fulfilling without them.

    *I will have to put a lot of thought into what I just got done watching. I can tell you I wish I would have saw this back in theatres in 2006. I envy those of you who did*

    I've had this on my queue for some time now and figured there was no better time than the 2015 December Challenge to get to it. I remember when I first saw trailers for this and thought it looked visually stunning and it was something I was interested in, but for some reason I just never got around to it. At that time Aronofsky was only known for Pi…
