Pretentious piece of artsy fartsy junk. I felt sorry for the actors - Jackson especially looked like a chump in this. Should have been advertised as an art film instead os hoodwinkingthe general public into paying for a ticket to be entertained. Want my money back for the loss of two hours of my life.

in one word...stunning...a movie to watch over and over again and catch new things ever time you watch it...what movies should be, an expression of the human soul not big budget movies about nothing, that you watch today and forget tomorrow

This movie was fantastic. Perhaps a bit hard for anyone who's not able to follow the ever-shifting point of view. That does take away a little. But overall, this movie was amazing.

The Fountain is a high concept art film. It`s look is gorgeous and very original. It also grapples with some deep themes. I read an interview of the director, Darren Aronofsky, where he said that he liked the idea that we are all recycled. This is something to keep in mind when watching the film: the idea that the matter we are all made up of has existed for billions of years. Although Hugh Jackman`s character focuses his life on battling death, the film keeps hinting at a bigger picture, where death plays a vital part in the continuance of life. In this way, we are all immortal. The film also shows that the moments we have as individuals are

A movie has to be extremely good to give it a top-bill rating...Not saying that I have not done that in the past..."The Fountain" is one of those ecclectic movies just striving to reach above and beyond... It succeeds to an extent, but in its desperate striving to do so it loses some in the process...However, I must say that it was a very well put together work of art...Brilliant movie making..great acting...artistic dreamscapes that linger long in the mind along with a timeless philosophy of plot...All these factors weave together to make the fabric of "The Fountain" one of the better movies that I have seen for a while...If I was to paint
