The Fountain

    2 March 2008, early morning

I watched Darren Aronofsky’s third film, the Fountain, with Mezan and Carvill yesterday. There are three story lines in the film: in the present day, where a scientist is trying to save his dying wifes life by searching for a miracle cure to brain cancer; in the past, where a Spanish conquistador is searching for the tree of life for his Queen, and in the future, where a dude is traveling through space in a sphere with a tree. It’s basically a love story, with some science fiction mixed in. The dude is always played by Wolverine and the lady by the lovely Rachael Weisz. It’s an interesting film. I liked it a lot. Visually it’s quite stunning. I thought both Weisz and Jackman did good jobs playing their respective characters. The Fountain is well worth watching.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
