The Fountain - Darren Aronofsky

Cej and JoAnn told me that this movie was pretentious, so I skipped to the comic version, which—perhaps due to the medium—avoided being overbearing. A conquistador searches for the tree of life, but will he find it in time to save himself and those he loves? There are some beautiful paintings by Kent Williams and compelling ideas from Aronofsky (the author of both this comic and the film), but nothing stupendous.
