The Fountain Review

What Is It?

The 2006 American epic magical realism romantic drama movie The Fountain.

The Fountain

This is how The IMDb describes this movie:

As a modern-day scientist, Tommy is struggling with mortality, desperately searching for the medical breakthrough that will save the life of his cancer-stricken wife, Izzi.

Three stories – one each from the past, present, and future – about men in pursuit of eternity with their love. A conquistador in Mayan country searches for the tree of life to free his captive queen; a medical researcher, working with various trees, looks for a cure that will save his dying wife; a space traveler, traveling with an aged tree encapsulated within a bubble, moves toward a dying star that’s wrapped in a nebula; he seeks eternity with his love. The stories intersect and parallel; the quests fail and succeed. —jhailey@hotmail.com

NF Dies | An African Vision | Apocalyptic Ideas | A Military Veteran Building

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is that I found out from someone, a man but I can not remember who, that my online female contact in Germany NF had gotten married to my former male classmate AM in the past.

I was shocked by this and he showed me some evidence that probably included video and photographs, NF looked different and very beautiful and she looked like herself combined with Monica Roccaforte with beautiful shiny brown a medium-length hair in a particular hairstyle that was more like one that Monica would wear, and this different and beautiful appearance surprised/confused/caught my attention strong enough that I felt it as I tried to make sense of this.

Dream 1

All that I can remember of the first dream is maybe something organized that somewhat and somehow involved and/or reminded me of maybe WordPress and the Syfy television miniseries Ascension, there was a murder, and this murder caused instability and disorder and other problems; and there were efforts to try to solve this murder mystery, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of the second dream is that it took place during the day in a fictional location and I came across my former male classmate JC, my former male classmate DH, my former male classmate MT, my former male classmate JB, and maybe several other former male classmates of mine.

We went several places to talk and hang out and we met several other people, including a somewhat older rough-looking man with whitish colored skin with somewhat longer facial hair wearing a bandanna and a motorcycle gang/club/whatever-like vest who was probably part of a motorcycle club or gang, and at some point a few of us went with my former classmate JC to his job.

My former classmate JC’s boss was a woman with whitish colored skin with long hair, he worked in a store that was somewhat like Walgreens maybe, and maybe my former classmate JC was working as we talked to him and maybe we helped him almost like maybe we were going to ask for jobs there or maybe we were just helping him.

His boss seemed to be involved with a motorcycle gang and I remember some of the workers and some other people talking to her, I told the man with us to take off his vest to avoid a possible conflict with the motorcycle gang that the boss seemed to be involved with, and so he did; but someone probably saw him taking the vest off, and they became suspicious.

We were probably approached by the boss and some people who were with her, I remember trying to handle the situation peacefully, but I can not remember the rest of the dream.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of the third dream is that it took place inside a building during a celebration/party that seemed like a wedding after-party maybe and there were celebrities there, and I remember sitting at a table or couch in an area where almost everyone was eating/drinking/talking/dancing/listening to music/and more.

The actor Peter Dinklage was very drunk (seriously drunk) and sitting next to me talking to himself, singing, giving speeches, goofing around, not able to sit straight or stand without falling, and more as I sat there a bit awkwardly trying to keep to myself; and Mr. Dinklage kept falling/leaning on me sometimes because he was so drunk, he probably talked to me a bit thinking that I was someone else because he was so drunk, and then he fell asleep/unconscious on maybe my leg like a kitten/cat sleeping on a ledge.

Eventually I was probably able to lay him on the couch or on some chairs properly and I probably asked some of the others to keep checking on him and find his friends/family so that they could help him, maybe I went to look for who ever he came with (friends/family) so that they could help him because he was super drunk, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 4

All that I can remember of the fourth/last dream is that it took place during the day in a fictional city that seemed to be based on/inspired by the city of LC at a fictional version of the boardwalk and SB Drive, and I remember walking down the sidewalk of this fictional SB Drive; and some celebrities lived there, I saw the actor Hugh Jackman walking down the sidewalk to talk to a female actress who was thin with whitish colored skin with long yellowish colored hair, but I can not remember who she was (maybe Kirsten Dunst?).

Mr. Jackman was telling her about something that he could help her with and/or that he was promoting, possibly a business and/or business idea that he was involved with, but she seemed politely uninterested; but Mr. Jackman was very positive, and he offered to help her with something for free (maybe some house work or yard work and/or a favor like that), and maybe he invited her to an event at his house soon where he would promote his business and/or business idea/whatever.

I decided to turn around to walk back to the boardwalk to find the bathroom because I needed to urinate, Mr. Jackman walked in front of me happily back to his house, and then I walked back to the indoor men’s bathroom at the boardwalk that was inside a somewhat nice dimly lit building/area.

D the cousin of my former male classmate DH entered the bathroom as well, there were two bathroom stalls, and one open urinal with no privacy by the sink; and I greeted him, one of the bathroom stalls entrance was so thin/narrow that I could not fit inside of it, and so I told D that he should probably use that one because he is very thin so he used that bathroom stall.

The other bathroom stall also had a very thin/narrow entrance but probably not as thin/narrow but I decided to use the open urinal instead, and so I remember urinating at the open urinal as I talked to D who was in the stall behind me about how the weather forecast predicted bad weather/rain.

This bathroom and indoor area was familiar to me like I visited it earlier in the dream and/or in another dream during the night and/or in a past dream or maybe those were false memories, I probably finished using the bathroom and I probably washed my hands but I can not remember, and I probably left the bathroom; but that is all that I can remember of this dream before waking up.

The end,

I went to bed late last night again and I slept very well/solidly, and so I barely remember part of one or two dreams that were pretty long and detailed; but unfortunately I forgot most of the dream or dreams, and so they do not make much sense and my memory of them is probably flawed and so I will probably make mistakes about what really happened during the dream or dreams.

I remembering returning to college at maybe a fictional two-year college but I could be wrong, this time I was focused and I probably still lived at my parents’ house and so my parents’ probably helped support me with trying to focus on college this time, and maybe this college was in another city but I am not sure.

The dream had time jumps of me going to my college classes, doing homework, talking to some of my former classmates and fictional classmates, et cetera; and eventually I passed my first semester with straight As, and later in the dream I think that it was time for my college graduation which I think was going to take place in a fictional version of the city of D at the C Elementary School or near it but I could be wrong.

The dream slowed down during this part of the dream probably focusing on the details of preparing for the college graduation, talking to people, et cetera and many things happened during this part of the dream that I can not remember unfortunately; and maybe some people and I prevented an attack or something like that, but I can not remember.

I went to bed earlier last night after feeling a bit weird after jogging and feeling comfortable/tired after taking a bath, I got awakened by heat and someone watching TV and having to use the bathroom a few times during the night still feeling a bit weird (like how I feel sometimes if I go to sleep during the day (which is super rare) and wake up or how I feel sometimes when I over-sleep, a bit disoriented/off-balance/whatever is how I feel, it is hard to describe), and so I woke up many times after having a lot of short dreams; and I forgot most of the short dreams except for barely part of two short dreams that I voice recorded, and later I had a third and longer dream that I remember part of and now I am finally typing my dreams now that I am back home.

Dream 1

I barely remember part of the end of the first dream and I was driving down a road during the day listening to a radio I think and somehow I was also able to also see video clips/scenes of what was being talked about, they were talking about several small real and/or fictional European or European-like countries that were next to each other, and I was driving through each of these small countries which were all about the size of a neighborhood and looked basically like neighborhoods instead of countries.

The names of and facts about each country were being mentioned while video clips/scenes showed each country and some of the people of each country (each country had interesting laws/rules because the countries seemed more democratic that most other countries and the people had real power to change/add/remove laws/rules instead of a small group of politicians/people/corporations/whoever working against many of the interests of the average person), I remember one country having a name that sounded something like Vadstock or Vladstock (maybe a fake Ukraine), and one of the strange/interesting facts about this country was that alcoholic drinks were free in the country of Vadstock/Vladstock (I think that it was a law or rule, but I could be wrong); and there were probably some video clips/scenes of people drinking alcoholic drinks having a good time, and of some people getting drunk and vomiting and/or falling because they could not walk straight.

Some of the people/hosts of the radio show who were talking about the countries on the radio probably made some jokes about this fact about Vadstock/Vladstock and the hosts had some special guests with them in their studio (probably in one of the countries or another unknown country) like the actor Jim Carrey who was in character as Ace Ventura, Hugh Jackman (I think), and several other actors and actresses; and I remember Hugh Jackman dressing up and doing his impersonation of Ace Ventura, and he looked and acted more like Ace Ventura than Jim Carrey did to my surprise.
