Profile of The Fountain

The Fountain can be described as contemplative, stylized, and atmospheric. The plot revolves around reincarnation, true love, and tragic love. The main genres are drama, romance, and period. In terms of style, The Fountain is nonlinear, is epic, and is surreal. In approach, it is fantastical and serious. The storytelling is slow paced. The Fountain is set, at least in part, in outer space. It is located in Spain and South America. It takes place in the 16th century, in the future, and in contemporary times. The soundtrack of The Fountain is alternative and orchestral. The movie has received attention for being original and an Oscar winner. Note that it involves violent content.

Critics Reviews

Rolling Stone
In telling a tale of love across time, Aronofsky is sometimes guilty of creating arty, pretentious psychobabble. But in visual terms, he's trying to expose his own raw, romantic heart. Folly? Maybe. But a risk worth taking.

Entertainment Weekly
I'm as touched and charmed by its failures as I am transfixed, at times, by its successful inventiveness and audacity.

This movie felt overly ambitious to me. It was trying to be super deep and artsy and inspiring, and ended up unrelatable and confusing and bleak.

I was in a completely wrong mood and sense of mind for Aronofsky. Hence the low rating.

Well executed cinematography featuring some of the best lighting you'll see in a movie. The space scenes while simple are awe inspiring. As far as the plot, not sure I got it.

A must-see
This movie is undoubtedly the best I've seen so far. Everything about it is stunning,its plot, the acting, the visuals and last but not least the message it delivers. A true masterpiece from the gifted Darren Aronofsky!

This is a difficult film to review. It really needs to be watched twice because there are several ways to interpret it. Is the future story actually the present or is it the way the present man decided to finish her book? If its the former then how...

Imagine everything that was right about "Pi" and most of what was right about "Requiem for a Dream," then imagine the complete opposite...and you'll get "The Fountain." It's really unfortunate because Darren Aronofsky is absolutely one of the best...

I understand most people may not get/like it - but it's worth a shot... It's a sci-fi filled with a love story and some mythology tossed in as well. True love - spanning lifetimes. The movie will be sketchy for some - the sounds the visuals, might...

This is not a regular movie. This movie's plot is tenuous, at best. This film is an 'idea' film. it is reminiscent of '2001: A Space Odyssey' in the sense that it does, in fact, tell a story, but the story is secondary to the philosophical ideas...
