    Possibly the quintessential film about human mortality, The Fountain boasts a highly intriguing and thought-provoking story that pulls at your emotions as much as your pre-frontal cortex. This level of story-telling backed by outstanding cinematography, beautiful acting, and a pitch perfect score, make The Fountain an unforgettable and timeless piece of art.

    There are three paths through the film. Each tells a small part of a larger story: fantasy, reality, and meta-physicality. Each of them boring, predictable, and a little pretentious. Just not my cup of tea.

    Man eats ranch dressing, turns into flowers. Also, currents of sexism and racism so deep it tires me to even think about.

    MARAVILLYA. Es "complicada" (a nivel narrativo, visual, temático) pero no se pasa de pedante ni resulta demasiado literal. ¡Muy bien!

    Watching this film in 2014, I couldn't help but feel that at least parts of The Fountain feel dated (especially the "modern day" portion). This is not to pass judgement on the film's quality, but is only an observation.

    For the most part, The Fountain is a well-put-together film, displaying a competency in Aronofsky's weaving together of the three situations. He brings these into focus with each slowly, allowing some time for confusion before the viewer has an understanding of…

    Saw this a while back. I remember it being marketed as having a lot to do with time travel, but I found that it is remarkably more satisfying to interpret it as having nothing to do with time travel at all. Try it. I firmly think time travel is in no way essential to this film. It only complicates it. The "past/present/future" motif is fairly useful, but that doesn't have to mean "time travel" and I don't think it's literal. Great Hugh Jackman performance.
