Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

The Fountain (2006)

Isabel: For every shadow, no matter how
deep, is threatened by morning light.

I listen to Clint Mansell's magnificent score for The Fountain all the time (indeed I saw him perform it live once inside a church here in NYC and it nearly blew my head off) but I'm only just now realizing here on the film's 15th anniversary that I probably haven't sat down and watched the film itself in nearly fifteen years? I should fix that! It's a good movie for the holidays, maybe I'll watch it over Thanksgiving break and report back. What are your thoughts on The Fountain for its 15th anniversary, if any? Fans?

The score is incredible, but I liked the movie too. It moved me a lot. Plus it has a very underrated Hugh Jackman performance.

The greatest score ever written. If there was a god that what she listen to when she created the world.

Loved this movie so much! A couple I went to the theatre to see it with absolutely hated it. Like many of Aronofsky's films its polarizing. I've enjoyed every single one of his movies (even Noah)
