AVC: Do you feel The Fountain has found a second audience at this point?
DA: Oh there’s definitely an audience for The Fountain. I’d say it’s probably 30-70, 30 percent of people who really get it, and those types of people have seen it a few times. The reality is, to make a commercial movie about coming to terms with death—a lot of people want to see people get killed, not a metaphysical take on death, so it’ll take its time to find people that are open to it, and there’ll always be people that won’t at all want to experience it. It’s my best work, and the final film is the film I wanted to make, and I’m very proud of it. My intention got out there.
That article was a great start to my day, and just to say I have loved The Fountain ever since I saw it opening night.
