This is actually a bit of a cross between Movies and Comics, but I decided that since I saw the film first I'd put it in here.
I was curious about members final perspective on the film. I understand that many people were not fond of it, but it's actually one of my favorite
films (and comics) of all time. Aronofsky himself claimed it as the final part of his trilogy, "Mind, Body, and Spirit." Pi being Mind. Requiem
for a Dream being body. The Fountain being Spirit.
Personally I totally identify with all 3 films in one way or another, but The Fountain 100x more than the other 2 films.
I thought that perhaps, the members of ATS/BTS might have a few things to say about the depth of the film. Perhaps a few, or several, of you have
also read the comic. If so, I'd like to hear your opinion on that as well, especially in relation to the film. Personally, I like them both equally
for a plethora of reasons. But I'm not here to list my own reasons, I've come to hear your reasons.
I hope this thread picks up because I think there's a lot to discuss on the subjects involved in the film. I'm very much okay with this thread
segueing into a spiritual discussion, as I believe The Fountain is very easily made into a spiritual DISCUSSION. Let us avoid debate (just in case).
