Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

The Fountain (2006)

Directed by Darren Aronofsky

Starring Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz, Ellen Burstyn, Mark Margolis


Beautiful to look at, with brown and copper filling the frame with luxurious emotion. The droning score complements the visuals perfectly, bringing it all to life. Even the credits are hauntingly beautiful. Solaris was similarly successful.

Aronofsky gives us a thoughtful mind-stretcher. He’s certainly coming into his own. How’d he get involved with the almost exclusively French crew?

Wonderful editing. Jackman boldly extends himself.
