Customer Review

on April 16, 2008
I rarely see a film that divides critics and viewers alike as much as the Fountain seems to. People either find it an overcomplicated, depressing piece which, at is kindest, is too art house-y, for a main stream audience. Either that or you will find it an sweeping tale of love/loss, life and death, which is beautiful to watch and hear (the sombre score really is brilliant). A tale which challenges us to think about what really matters and how fragile, brief, insignificant yet wondrous life really is.

I fall into the latter camp, I enjoy a film that really makes me think, and is so visually appealing and different, The Fountain is almost like a poem being made into a movie, with an almost operatic and balleticfeel to it.

I loved it, but as the mixed reviews here alone will tell you it isn't everyones cup of tea, but then what is.
