What is your take/analysis of The Fountain? I had to watch it 4 or 5 times before I decided upon a satisfactory analysis of it. Also, it has an incredible soundtrack, particularly "Death is the Road to Awe." One of the most intense and beautiful songs to come from cinema.

That movie is awesome... my take... it's all about perspective. Hers was past, reality was the present, and his was future man. All views led to the same conclusion.... death is a part of life but it's not the end. It's just a transition to another state of being. No point in being afraid of it, just understand that it's not the end & we will see our loved ones again. So her book was to help her hubby see her point of view b/c he was wasting the majority of his time searching for a cure & not making the most of the time he had left with her. He finished the book with the future-man view that was his path towards the same understanding she had.... that death really is the road to awe... and that they would be together again... Maybe I'm just crazy but I thought that movie was deep & amazing. It's one of my favorites of all time.

I'll have to watch it again, but that was basically my analysis too. The key to living forever is not to search for some fountain of youth (like the one in the conquistador scenario, or the scientific discovery in the modern scenario) but to accept death. Once he accepts death (the future scenario), then he is able to live forever, with her.
