The plot: Over the course of a thousand years, a traveller called Tomas or Tommy crops up in three diverse scenarios: as a Spanish Conquistador, sent out to Mayan lands to seek out a Tree of Life and save Spain for its Queen; as a doctor racing to find a cure for his beloved, dying wife by using a compound derived from the tree; and as a traveller through space with the tree, voyaging towards a nebula where he can be reunited with his lost love. 929 more words
Directed by: Darren Aronofsky. Already on paper, this is a pretty hilarious and strangely cool movie in its basics: It’s a big modern Hollywood retelling of the Noah’s Arc story, full of modern CGI apocalypse sequences, disturbing Abraham-ish infanticidal overtones, and—why not?—a bunch of talking CGI rock monsters. 1,183 more words
