Three stories - one each from the past, present, and future - about men in pursuit of eternity with their love. A conquistador in Mayan country searches for the tree of life to free his captive queen; a medical researcher, working with various trees, looks for a cure that will save his dying wife; a space traveler, traveling with an aged tree encapsulated within a bubble, moves toward a dying star that's wrapped in a nebula; he seeks eternity with his love. The stories intersect and parallel; the quests fail and succeed.
I watched Darren Aronofskys New Film The fountain last night.
The Movie was Quite Brilliant. As usual his Artistic Filmography was Amazing.
I think Hugh Jackman played a very in depth Charactor whos love is taken from him over and over as sets out across time to set things right.
I was very pleased Ellen Burstyn returned to do another one of Darrens Films. She was amazing in Requiem for a Dream.
The preveiw for Darren Aronofsky's Requiem For A Dream.
Drugs. They consume mind, body and soul. Once you're hooked, you're hooked. Four lives. Four addicts. Four failures. Doing their best to succeed in the world, but failing miserably, four people get hooked on various drugs. Despite their aspirations of greatness, they succumb to their addictions. Watching the addicts spiral out of control, we bear witness to the dirtiest, ugliest portions of the underworld addicts reside in. It is shocking and eye-opening but demands to be seen by both addicts and non-addicts alike.
