The Fountain

Date of first viewing: Friday, May 18, 2007

Location: Home
Format: DVD (Oh how I wish I'd seen this on the big screen when it was first released.)

I can't remember ever having such a purely visceral experience watching a movie. From the first stunning image I began to cry and by the end of the film, my body was wracked with sobs. It wasn't sadness that brought on the crying, but an almost unbearable elation! My point is that this movie is not something to figure out with the logical mind. Like the practice of meditation, it's not a concept to be grasped intellectually, but an experience to be felt by letting go. Letting go. Letting go. Each moment, letting go. Which is ultimately the point of this gorgeous masterpiece, is it not?
