(NJ.com)   Jennifer Lawrence is hot, Javier Bardem is hunky, and 'mother' is still the most off-the-wall nonsense Darren Aronofsky has ever made. And yes, we saw 'The Fountain.'   ( nj.com) divider line

Same here.  I watched it late at night by myself and thought it was pretty good.

The trailer kinda reminded me of a lame american-ized Kill List.

Read the article, watched the trailer, and I still have no idea what the movie is supposed to be.

Jennifer Lawrence going insane on her own?  Writer creating a cult a la L Ron Hubbard?

Dear lord I hope Jennifer doesn't fall into the "I only get work because I sleep with the director" category.

If you want off the wall nonsense watch 'Knight of Cups', the most pretentious crap I have ever seen. it's like Terrence Malick wanted to create the cinematic equivalent of an artistic fart.

I thought it was pretty straight forward. It's a multipath work on a theme. Not much for plot, iirc. Lots of visual wank.

I doubt she does: her place in Hollywood mythos (and her future income) has all but been assured by The Hunger Games, the X-Men movies, American Hustle and Silver Lining Playbook.

Mind you, she was great in Passengers and Joy too.

The Fountain has a great score, but so do all Aronofsky films. Clint Mansell did well for himself. And next to Noah, The Fountain is high art. In both cases he tried for something big that just fell flat. I can't fault him for trying, but I can fault him for blaming audiences that "didn't get" it.

He probably had to sleep with her before she would accept the role.

Your not alone, but the written description sounds like an Aronofsky version of The Shining but not so isolated.  Sounds like awesome cast with Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer too.  I'm going to have to check it out.

I will see it. Not necessarily because it will be good (jury is out), but because Aronofsky's failures are more interesting than 90% of the successes we get out of Hollywood nowadays.

It could fall into the Requiem for a Dream category: a movie that I have seen just once, not because it is bad but because it is too good at what it is and is thus too disturbing for a rewatch.

She's the highest paid actress in the world. She's still a long way away from Kate Capshaw territory.

I think Aronofsky is one of the best ones out there. He's not exactly prolific, but when he does make a film, its noteworthy.

I think The Wrestler was excellent, probably my favorite of his work.
