DVD Review – The Fountain

The Fountain
Written and Directed by Darren Aronofsky
I wasn’t as prolific about this film upon release as I could have been, to be honest. In an email I sent to Darren Aronofsky and Eric Watson after I saw the film I wrote: “Along with a very talented group of people, you have created a beautiful, thoughtful, and heartfelt film” and of course, I told everyone I knew how the same thing. Some of them scoffed at me (most of them never having actually seen the film). I didn’t write a review for this blog and I wasn’t assigned to review it for any other outlet and for that, I am sorry. I certainly talked it up and considering how many people know, my mouth may be mightier than my pen. However, in the 8+ months since I saw the film, the traffic for this blog has grown approximately 500%, so maybe, just a little bit, I can influence a few more people.

IFFR 07: Christian Bale Bookends Rotterdam

The other day it was announced that Werner Herzog’s excellent film Rescue Dawn would open the 2007 Rotterdam International Film Festival and today the fest’s site mentions that the closing night film will be Christopher Nolan’s well-received The Prestige. Despite being a massive David Bowie fan, I managed to miss The Prestige when it was open here in the US, so I am greatly looking forward to seeing it in Rotterdam!b0004233_19461888.jpg
Oh…the title of this post. Right. Both movies star Christian Bale.
