Another science fiction film with a reincarnation/parallel life theme is 'The Fountain' with Hugh Jackman

What I took from the movie was that is was trying to illustrate the TRUTH of the matter which is we have a choice in our actions to reap what we sow...regardless of reincarnation this is the truth none the less.
Our actions or lack of actions today create the future we endure or thrive in tomorrow...this isn't scifi this is fact. The part that is scifi is the reincarnation part but I do have to ask....does it matter?
There were certain archetypes that were drivers in the movie such as the oppressor, the oppressed, the freedom fighter, and the greedy or "indirect oppressor"....
the interactions of these types is what drove the world in the direction it went...
anyway don't want to spoilany more....its an awesome movie and its pretty damn thought provoking if you ask me.

I haven't seen it, but from what I have heard is that it attempts to portray the notion that we have a sort of soul which exists outside of time and space, and that instead of reincarnation one after the other, it is more like one soul is having many life experiences at the same time.
Like right now, you are also many other people in other time periods, and there are parallels between this personage you identify with, and the others, because it is the same soul, with a specific pattern that you all share on very deep subconscious levels.
But I can't wait to see it.

That's not what I got from it at all. The director just has an odd way of putting movies together to confuse us and make us watch it more than once and screw with our heads I think. It's made by the same people as the Matrix if you didn't know...
But, I'm not saying you're wrong either.
