    the movie was much better ,It was totally another dimension, where the feelings were in every scene The novel is not even close but it still good to read especially when you read it while listening to the movie s soundtrack.it s 2.5 stars not 3

    So I think we ve all watched, Reqiuem for a Dream And I suppose many of us have watched The Fountain movie But, how many of us have read the graphic novel rendition Cuz sic if you haven t You Should The Fountain is suffused with some of the most beautiful water colors I ve ever seen grace a graphic novel Much like the phenomenal Horrorist wispy blotches of ink and paint dress a thousand panels before our eyes Whether as a a nod, a homage, or neither, the resemblances are unmistakable.And while the visuals are as shimmery as they are striking, the story itself barrels forth with a power that grows from a mere whisper to a roar of cosmic proportions As a story, within a story, within a story, numerous frameworks resonate within each other to forge a powerful double plus frame story I noticed similarities to the the frame story of Assassins Creed Maybe I m just crazy In all fairness however, I m not sure how coherent the story itself is at points but, its emotional connectivity forges a truly visceral bond between reader and the fingers that grasp it Two Big Thumbs Up

    Darren Aronofsky s graphic novelization of his film The Fountain Aronofsky thought he would never get the film made, so he contacted Vertigo Comics to express the story in a paper medium, as he couldn t just let this project go The film eventually got the green the light, but Aronofsky still wrote the graphic novel.The Story It is the same as in the film, with the same chronological order with a little details that will help you understand the film better, if you ve seen it It s 3 stories that are connected one set in the future, one in the past one is current Like the film, the current one was the most interesting one The book did a better job of explaining the past arch story The future story, like the film, remains the most surreal of the stories It s up to you, the reader, to interpret.The Art Surreal is what kept ringing in my head as I stared at the pictures Although, it isn t exactly surreal in the past current arch stories I disliked how the character were very anorexic looking, with a lot of red shading that occasionally looked like they were bleeding Nonetheless, I liked the dark atmosphere of the pages as depressing as the film artistically lovely.This graphic novel is a good read for those who haven t seen the film Those who did liked it, I highly recommend it It ll help you understand the film, which is my favorite film ever.

    In 2002, director Darren Aronofsky planned to make a movie based on his script called The Fountain , starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett Seven weeks before filming was to start, Pitt backed out of the project and it was shelved indefinitely Finally, in early 2005, the director re launched the project at a production cost of 35 million half the original budget , with Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz taking over the starring roles But before Aronofsky got the green light to film the movie which has now become something of a cult classic, he felt so strongly that he need to tell this story of a man s confrontation with mortality that he collaborated with artist Kent Williams on realizing the tale as a graphic novel And while, for the uninitiated, the graphic novel probably seems like an intriguing combination of metaphysical treatise and Goya inspired, chaotic and colorful illustration, for those of us who were transfixed and moved by the 2006 film, it cannot hope to capture that version s power and operatic emotionalism.Perhaps it is unfair to compare a story told via two such disparate mediums but in fact, both deal with the frame of information, with film conveying an illusion of motion, while the graphic novel comic can be seen as an attempt to distill this motion to its most concentrated moments of meaning comic artist Scott McCloud calls his medium juxtaposed pictorial and other images in deliberate sequence intended to convey information and or to produce and aesthetic response in the viewer And while the graphic novel tends to heighten the abstract qualities of the narrative via a painterly depiction of the energy of the story with its slashing lines and boiling color palette, the movie tends to root even its most fantastical qualities in a precise, detailed photo realistic style But where the novel really cannot compete with the movie is in the very real and human qualities that the actors bring to the story The grief, the madness, the glory and ultimate transcendence of the lives of Tomas Tom Tommy and Isobel Izzy are beautifully, fully realized by the performances of Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz In the graphic novel these characters are mere abstractions compared to the flesh and blood human beings we relate to in the film What the book of The Fountain makes up in story detail, it loses in its inability to move us in the profound way that Aronofsky s film does.So, if you are a fan of the film, or a completist, or care to compare how the medium shapes the message and narrative of a story, by all means, pick up the graphic novel be assured, though, that the real EXPERIENCE to be had is by watching the film I m supremely grateful that Darren Aronofsky succeeded in finally committing his vision to film, for it is indeed a singularly sensual and emotional experience, and one of the very best films of the new century.

    Hmmm I liked it because it was different, it makes use of the freedom that the comics medium gives, and because it had a string storyline I still can t decide whether I liked the artwork some of it worked well, in an unusual watercolor style, but much of it just looked like unfinished sketches I think I ll have to settle for a non committal interesting verdict.

    I have been suggested to watch the movie of it It was totally another dimension, very nice movie, where the feelings were in every scene Than I read the book, at this moment you realize the dimension of love, that activity of ourself is not what we do in our everyday life but beyond the stars

    He said that if they dug his father s body up, it would be gone They planted a seed over his grave The seed became a tree Moses said his father became a part of that tree He grew into the wood, into the bloom And when a sparrow ate the tree s fruit, his father flew with the birds He said death was his father s road to awe That s what he called it The road to awe Now, I ve been trying to write the last chapter and I haven t been able to get that out of my head The Fountain is one of these movies that is so utterly beautiful and makes us think and ask questions about life, death and the next life.I have always thought it was a beautiful movie, very sad, very touching, and calming I just discovered there is a book Can t wait to buy it Rachel Weisz is so beautiful and played Izzi wonderfully, she was, after all, Tom s tree of life.

    Darren Aronofsky is a remarkable man His refusal to compromise and produce powerful, sincere, moving films is unmatched The Fountain serves notice as the determination of this man and his drive to create powerful timeless fiction I often feel in art today few people really push to achieve greatness despite the potential pitfalls Darren s risk is our gain This graphic novel based off the original script is one of the most moving attempts to capture the pain of loss, gain, love, and life There is nothing in life challenging to articulate than the meaning of life, loss and love Thank you Darren for you ambitions and dreams.

    A tad bit sloppy, but I think that added to the beautiful effect of the Tree of Life It s not meant to be a formulaic or cut and pasted story and I m so happy that the graphics conveyed that truth I love the elaborations made to what happened in the film, and it s hard to picture that the whole movie could be summed up within 166 pages, but it was done with perfection I love Aronofsky s genius so much, and I really hope he takes his talent to the page often.
