The Fountain (2006) – 3.5/5
I liked this movie. It’s great to look at and the interwoven storied from different times is great. The emotion is powerful and tone is awesome (it’s almost always night).
Ultimately, I’m afraid some of the “film” got in the way of the “story.” I didn’t find myself attached though I enjoyed watching it.
The jumps from one time (or reality) to another are tough to watch w/o wondering what they’re trying to do which took me out of the my suspension of disbelief.
Also, I may have missed the message, but what I think I got out of the message was a little disappointing.
But I did enjoy it and it’s VERY well made.
If the message was, we all live forever b/c we become one w/ the earth, plants, birds, cosmos, etc., then I got the message and it’s a little disappointing for such a film imo.
