The Fountain - (the movie)
My view of the Fountain
I have watched 'The Fountain' roughly 2 years ago and thought it was an absolute waste of time, I found it hard to follow and it just didn't pull me in. However, I felt the urge to watch it yesterday... and wow what a completely different view I had. I had no idea of the depth this movie had and how easy it was to follow this time round. It's interesting how your life experiences can change your perception of a movie, I think that's what happened to me. Experiencing love in different lights can change your whole thinking about an array of things. It can make you appreciate and value things more, it helps you to grow as a person.
The way Darren Aronofsky (Director) depicted this beautiful story was mainly through metaphors - hence the difficultly in some people trying to understand the movie. His eye for detail and picturesque scenes are nothing short of stunning! The intensity of love Tommy (Hugh Jackman) and Isabel (Rachel Weisz) had for each other was shown with such sincerity - that was what made the movie (for me). You could feel his pain and his dedication throughout his journey of seeking eternity with his love.
Here are a few taglines to help you understand what they movie is about...
Death frees every soul.
Death as an act of creation.
What if you could love forever?
Death is the road to awe.
As depressing as a few of the taglines sound, I assure you it isn't.
Would love to have opinions and views from others who have seen the movie, as well as those who are intrigued about it. I have more views to express and therefore will add more later.
