Experimental films are not for everyone. Some directors earn a living by making popular movies then go back and make what they really wanted to make. The Fountain is such a film; used by Aronofsky to extend the craft of film making - NOT a film for everyone to watch - too challenging for most audiences.
If you like experimentation with good solid concepts which are pulled-off well, then this film is for you. This film is made by a master craftsman and fits into the same class as 2001 and Orlando. It is not the same level as 2001, but more directly comparable to Orlando. It is a wonderful film. If you like watching movies where a skilled director tries to tell a very complicated story without gutting the story, watch it, otherwise walk or run away.

Awful film that bombed at the box office for a very good reason. This film is boring beyond belief, makes no coherent sense and features some of the worst acting I've seen in years. Pretensious, pointless garbage from a grade z director

Spectacular! The only reason it wasn't a keeper for me...too much violence for family viewing. But the message is...worth listening to!
I highly recommend this movie, but don't want to give anything away...it's a journey.
