(500) Films Of Empire - Day 3

Keeping up a good pace with a further two films watched today.  From Robocop I moved to the man tasked with the remake/reboot/reimagining of the Robocop franchise; Darren Aronofsky.
And tonight would be a double bill of his two films on the list.

238 - Requiem For A Dream - 3 stars
Visually dazzling film where style nearly outweighs substance. Bloody hell, this is depressing stuff. Also features the scariest fridge since Ghostbusters!

Fortune favours the brave this evening as Film 4 was showing;

484 - The Fountain - 3 stars
I understood and appreciated this film a lot more second time around.  Probably Hugh Jackman's best performance. One thing is abundantly clear after this evening, Clint Mansell is the most talented composer working today (he also composed the score for Moon, the best film of 2009... so far)

You know between my ridiculously large DVD collection, Lovefilm and Film 4, I might just be able to do this.
