FOUNTAIN SPURTS


The A.V. Club has a review up of the comic book adaptation of Darren Aronofsky’s forthcoming The Fountain.

From Noel Murray’s review:

“It’s difficult to read The Fountain without imagining how it’s going to look as a movie, or wondering what Aronofsky ultimately changed for the screen. But that’s actually part of what’s enjoyable about the book. Readers can treat it like an elaborate storyboard and see a movie in their minds. Given Aronofsky’s penchant for obscurity, the mind-Fountain may even end up being clearer than the finished version, even though it lacks the director’s gift for dynamic cinematic poetry. Still, there’s a chance that when the movie opens this fall, those in the know will refer back to the comic, to get the message in a plainer package.”
