amazing film, i could barely breath toward the end it was so captivating.
hmm.. i've been wanting to see it but i'm going to have to see it alone... i doubt anyone i know will be into it..
Sweet! can't wait to see it. Been waiting since early 06
And ya, I prolly will too
The Fountain seems to be a movie that people seem to really like, or really hate
now I'm going to go see it
I read somehwhere that Darren Aronofsky (directed The Fountan) and Rachel Weisz (Isabel) are engaged. She was not even considered for the role until Hugh Jackman suggested it. Haven't seen yet but she seems to be prefect for the part.
I thought it was pretty good, there is an article in Wired magazine about how the outer space effects were made. It was done by taking extremely zoomed in pictures of a drop of liquid hitting a pool of liquid.
I'm going to watch it tonight.
I want to see it but it looks like I am the only one.
do go! you'll love it
I saw it and loved it
How about we go see again together
Yeah, no kidding about that. People walked out of it when I went to watch it on opening night. As for myself, I enjoyed the movie.
it's rotten i've been hesitant
lol, because most of it made no real sense. How 'bout you explain it for us?
The past wasn't really the past, it was the story that Izzi was writing; basically it is her perception of things in the present in the form of a story. And the future was not really the future but instead a symbolic representation of Tom's life, aka his perception; in a bubble isolating himself from civilization caring only for the tree which represented Izzi, his reason and purpose he lives. The present was the only time period that actually existed. I think what they wanted you to take from this movie was a new way to look at life and death in how it relates to the fountain of youth or living forever.
Saw it opening weekend, no reaction. Weeks later, no reaction.
Saw it tonight. Really liked it. A somewhat old couple walked out of it. I felt sorry for the wife-- the husband was all like "this is gibberish. i don't get it," so they ended up leaving.
i interpreted that the death of the guy's wife in the current timeline lead to him discovering a way to live forever, which lead to the future timeline. i think both of these stories are one and the same. izzy of the future timeline is in fact the same tree that he planted on her grave, and unfortunately it/she dies right as they get to the center of that nebula. i think this is the moment the guy finally realizes how he needs to end her story, the fountain. he probably realizes that immortality isn't everything, and life is more than that balh blah etc etc balh blaah
so many interpretations of the film, I dont understand why no one likes it.
I loved it, the film superceded all of Darrens past work.
to follow up on what you said, yes izzy is the tree. He planted the seed of the tree that he discovered, that if you eat the bark you live longer. the tatts on his arms were markings of years that passed. He finishes the book with Thomas slicing that guy's throat and dying from the tree of life.
I need to rewatch the movie again.
This movie was not what I expected but it was a decent flick. Especially if you want to jerk some tears out of the woman and make her snuggle your cock for a few hours. It was pretty emo though, lots of angst and pretty far out there in terms of reality so we have a sci-fi romance story with a side of action/adventure? The acting was well done however the stories (more than one) were too disjoint at times. It's probably hit or miss for most people, I didn't like it but it but that doesn't make it a bad movie.
6/10 from me
just got home from seeing it.
i cried and smiled at the same time, the film was so damn beautiful both visually and emotionally.
aronofsky is a genius.
I loved it, though I hated the other two Aronofsky movies.
I can understand people hating it - some might not get it, that's OK. Some might get it and hate it - I got both Pi and Requiem, they just weren't my thing. I don't think it's a movie where you can be a snob and say 'well you just didn't understand it.' It's not like that. It's just a piece of art that some people like and some don't. I enjoyed this one.
i feel bad for anyone who walked out
