  • In telling a tale of love across time, Aronofsky is sometimes guilty of creating arty, pretentious psychobabble. But in visual terms, he's trying to expose his own raw, romantic heart. Folly? Maybe. But a risk worth taking. show more

  • I feel for the marketing person charged with devising a tagline for Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain, a fantasy whose turgid pretensions defy the very notion of marketing. show more

  • Has to be one of the nuttiest, sappiest (literally), most unintentionally hilarious spectacles to come down the time-travel turnpike in eons. show more

    It was hard to follow all the shifts in time and story lines. The parts in themselves might have been entertaining, with them cut and pasted together the way they were made it difficult to track the overall story. Was it supposed to be someone’s dream? Really?
