      Is that the one with Jason Flemming and Dexter Fletcher and a submarine? If so, yeah, it was pretty creepy, and worth at least one watch.

        Darren Aronofsky has become one of my favorite directors. I saw Requiem for a Dream first and was horrified and in love with it at the same time. The Fountain struck me hard and I couldn't help but be absolutely mesmerized by the beauty and meaning it held within it's short time span. Today, for the first time, I watched Pi and I can honestly say that the man is very dynamic. His films feel similar in the repetition of shots and phrases, as well as camera angles...but they always come out at opposite ends of the spectrum. He's phenomenal and original and two of his three films are two of my all time favorites. The third, Pi, I enjoyed but it didn't grip me as much as the other two.

        Overall, The Fountain is my favorite and certainly the most beautiful.

        I can't wait for his future projects (The Wrestler, The Fighter, etc.) to come to fruition.

          The only film of his I've seen is the Fountain. I really liked the story, but his writing was so convoluted and pretentious that I ended up losing interest at parts. It's not a terrible movie, and visually it looked fantastic, but it would have benefitted from some fat trimming.

            The Fountain is one of the few movies that managed to make me weep (along with Into the Wild).

            It's such an amazing and emotional movie on so many levels. And the imagery is so fucking stunning. A visual masterpiece.

              Definitely not. The adaptation is nearly perfect, save for a few spots, and it's a very difficult novel to grasp...and read as well. I am sure those who have actually read Requiem can testify to that...but the novel has merit and the
              American Dream will never die.

              Yeah and when Ellen Burstyn was snubbed for the Oscar in '00, it was a turning point for me...I stopped giving a flying fuck about the Academy.

              Forward, not permanent, sweet, not lasting.

                  Requiem for a Dream was a masterpiece. I don't think it is possible for him to top that!!!! It was perfect in almost every aspect!

                    Guess what? He's the one doing the Robocop remake you whined about earlier.

                        Winona Ryder has also been cast.

                        What's weird is last night I had a dream that I got to go to Black Swan premiere and it was really good.

                          Then it wasn't a dream, sir. It was a premonition.

                            I look forward to seeing Ryder work with Aronosky on Black Swan. It will be good to see her perform in a meaty role again.
