The Fountain

 (2006)

The Fountain Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

The Fountain is an odyssey about one man's thousand-year struggle to save the woman he loves. His epic journey begins in 16th century Spain, where conquistador Tomás Creo (Hugh Jackman) commences his search for the Tree of Life, the legendary entity believed to grant eternal life to those who drink of its sap. As modern-day scientist Tommy Creo, he desperately struggles to find a cure for the cancer that is killing his beloved wife Isabel (Rachel Weisz). Traveling through deep space as a 26th century astronaut, Tom begins to grasp the mysteries of life that have consumed him for more than a century.

For more about The Fountain and the The Fountain Blu-ray release, see the The Fountain Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Hugh Jackman, Rachel Weisz, Ellen Burstyn, Mark Margolis, Stephen McHattie, Sean Patrick Thomas
Director: Darren Aronofsky

The Fountain Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Fountain soars on to the Bluray format in a 1080p/VC-1 encode, framed at a 1:85:1 aspect ratio. This is a pretty difficult read in terms of judging picture quality as the images are stylized, and are an intricate part of the storyline itself. I found no issues with the source, as there are no pops, scratches or any other film based artifacts. First thing you notice about watching this film is that colors just pop on screen. They are well saturated but very natural looking. Greens in the forest look lushly green, blood comes across looking naturally red and very lifelike, and gold that lines the throne room jumps off the screen. Detail and fine detail is first rate in spite of some scenes purposely shot a little soft. Background detail is excellent, and things like the bark on the tree of life have deep detail revealed for all to see. Check out each scene that has Tomas and Queen Isabel in them. The detail is stunningly good. Black levels are inky and deep and there is no sign of crush even though shadow detail can sometimes be concealed, especially at the beginning of the movie. As the film progresses, the overall light levels increase revealing better shadow detail, and even more overall detail. Contrast is very good, and any light object set against a black background shows that images have an excellent dynamic range and punch. Check out torches, fire, and lightening against the darkness is an excellent example of the dynamic punch of this film. This film shows exceptional depth of field, and at times I felt like I could reach into the screen, and my arm would go on forever into the background. Skin tones are natural, warm looking, and on occasion have a dreamlike quality that does not sacrifice facial details one bit. You will see every hair on men's faces, every wrinkle and rumple in clothing, and a weathered look in some of the actor's faces. I highly recommend that you watch this movie in a darkened room, as you see a lot more shadow detail in the beginning of the movie where it is the darkest. Nice job on the video


The Fountain Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

For a movie with such a complex sound mix, I am surprised that Warner thought to use the lossy Dolby Digital format encoded at 640kbps data rate. This track is weaved together like a finely crafted quilt. You have scenes with multiple layers of dialog layered over each other creating a "Walla" like effect. There are times where there is dominating dialog easily discernable over layered background dialog, and whisper competing with ambient sound effects. There is not much panning (you do get a few circular pans, and a few front to back and visa versa), but effects are masterfully placed in each channel, and you always fell like you are in the middle of the mix. There is a nice delineation between real would effects, and the metaphysical ones. Clint Mansell score played by the Kronos Quartet (of my neck of the woods San Francisco) is very well recorded, begins very dark much like the visuals, and much like the visuals becomes brighter and brighter tonally and texturally in presenting its themes. The sound field is filled to the brim with music, dialog and effects, frequently using all the speakers simultaneously without creating a congealed mess. Localization is excellent and dynamic range quite good. Great visuals and great sound create a very balanced presentation, and Aronofsky should be applauded for his attention to detail on this release.
