Movie of the Week: "The Fountain" by Darren Aronofsky

Keywords: Darren Aronofsky, The Fountain

"Darren Aronofsky, the genius who brought us 'Pi' and 'Requiem for a Dream', has produced a movie called 'The Fountain', which may be one of the most epic and thought provoking movies since 'Space Odyssey 2001.' "

"Just exactly what this movie is about has been kept a big secret. All that we know really is what can be gleaned from the recently released teaser trailer – and it doesn't tell us much. What we know is that the movie, starring Hugh Jackman, will span a period of 1,000 years, has themes of Mayan Mysticism, the quest for eternal life, and undying love."

"The movie takes place in three periods. In the first period Jackman is a Spanish Conquistador on a quest, the second period takes place in the present, and the third period takes place on another planet in the future.

The movie is expected to be released sometime early in 2006."
