The Fountain

"What if you could live forever?"

Six years after "Requiem For a Dream", director Darren Aronofsky finally released another masterpiece - "The Fountain". This movie was set to be released in 2004, but was delayed due to change of the casts and also some budget constraints.

It doesn's matter how you interpret the plot - whether you think it is about the real life, a historical story and our subconsciousness... or you really see it as past, present, and the future... the message is that we can only be "reborn" once we have come to "acceptance".

This is definitely one of the best movies I've ever seen and finally it's screened in Auckland... at "Academy Cinema", a small cinema hidden under Auckland Library. Please go and check it out, it's a must see.

P.S. minimal computer graphical editing was used in this movie... all the effects you see are special effects created by chemical reactions! It's amazing... :)
