    Weird film.

    I don't think I understood it really?? I didn't much care for most of it.

    I felt like it was trying to be too ~arty~ and ~deep~ to the sacrifice of a simple plot that you could use to springboard all of his ~themes~ off.

    The Fountain succeeds grandly at creating emotional connections, hopes, and dreams. As a story of one man trying to halt his wife's disease, blind to everything else, The Fountain is gripping. Unfortunately, Aronofsky wraps this heart-tugging story around some weak philosophy or fantasy or something, and it just never makes the logical sense that it should. I rarely suggest films should be LESS ambitious, but this is one of those cases where reigning in the bullcrap would be a huge help.

    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.
