Yes, and the problem is that modern film making is a powerful tool to get
messages across and convince people there is truth in any old rubbish. I
gather from reviews that the photography and graphic imaging in "The
Fountain" is stunning. Another reviewer said that the he wasn't a fan of
sound track CDs, but he was definitely going to buy this one as the music
was so good.

It may well be that viewing this film will make many people who have started
to think about their ultimate fate become quite contented at morphing into
fertiliser accompanied by the sound of the violins.
