Movie: The Fountain

So I saw The Fountain yesterday . . .man, did I hate this one.  It started promising enough, but come the end the various plot threads failed to tie together in a satisfying way.  I don't mind artsy movies, which this was, but not at the expense of the story.  I sort of got the impression that Arenofsky was trying to show off how smart he was, and that plain annoyed me.  I understood what happened.  I just didn't want to.
