If you haven’t watched it already I recomend you go watch The Fountain. It is one of the most beautiful movies I have ever seen.
It was directed by Darren Aronofsky who also directed Pi and Requiem for a Dream. It stars Darren’s wife Rachel Weisz and also Hugh Jackman. You will ikely not figure the movie out on the first viewing it took me a couopke to understand what was happening but I just cannot get over it.
The acting was marvolous, I can’t help but laugh or cry whenever Rachel Weisz does in the film, it’s absolute magic. Hugh Jackmen is also extremely good, he plays a character not unlike Jack Sheperd, except that Hugh’s character learns and changes as the movie goes on.
Also featured in the movie is what is called microphotography. Instead of using CGI to create the nebulaes and stars that Hugh’s character flies through they use film of micoscopic mateials in different liquids, it absolutely beautiful. The artist who did this film is Chris Parks, here’s his website.
The main point of this hijack was to talk about the music. I just got the soundtrack, finally. It was surpisingly hard to track down, I finally gave up and got it from Amazon. The music is absolutely breathtaking. The composer is Clint Mansell and his work is glorius. He also did the theme to Requiem of a Dream which you’ve probably heard in many other trailers you can listen to it here, it too is a wonderful song. But recently I have been listening to the theme of The Fountain over and over. Here it is:
