The Fountain


Definitley the most creative and obscure movie this year.

Different from his previous hallucinatory works ("pi" and "Requiem for a Dream"), this time Darren Aronofsky tried to tell a vivid story with three parallel structures. Time settings are said to be AD 1500, AD 2000 and AD 2500. However, the precise time points aren't necessary since the actual relationship among these three spacetimes are also untold.

The most outstanding part of this movie is its original sound track, which was also used to decorate the official trailer. The CGIs are full of originality but lack of shock, I guess it was the result of the budget shortage.

Still a fable that worth watching.
