The One-Sheet For Aronofsky's FOUNTAIN Is Online Now!!

Hi, everyone. "Moriarty" here with some Rumblings From The Lab...

And it is a thing of beauty. I want one of these. I want an oversized one that I can cover a wall with. I’ve seen the film now, but I can’t write about it just yet. As a result, I’m busting to talk about it. First, the poster, which first showed up online over at

Without breaking embargo, I can say that the poster goes a long way toward summing up the mood of the film without really ruining anything. It’s an exquisite image for an exquisite film. If I was going to try to give you a hint of what I’ll eventually write, I’d say this...

Acts of faith. Acts of devotion. Acts of love. In Darren Aronofsky's THE FOUNTAIN, these are all the same thing, the acts that connect his characters to something larger. The greatest miracle of this beautiful, human science-fiction story is that he's managed to make a film about infinity that pays full service to the subject while managing to only run 98 minutes. Not many films can blow your mind and break your heart at the same time, but this one will.

Hopefully I’ll have my full review for you soon. In the meantime, I’ve got a ton of pre-ComicCon stuff for you next week, including articles on 300 and STARDUST and Alan Moore’s latest work. Until then...

"Moriarty" out.
