Day 08. Oh! Look! It's my favorite number!

THE FOUNTAIN

by Darren Aronofsky. I think I liked it? I absolutely loved they whay they told the story! To combine the plot of her manuscript with their own journey through life and death is beautiful. I watched a non HD version and I'm not sure if that's a good thing because the bad CGI didn't look as shit, just blurry, but well, everything looked kinda blurry too. We really have come a long way since DVDs.
I really dislike the message of the movie. To just accept death and the fact that it's a normal thing, that is just natural.
Sure. Everything has to end, I guess that is how our universe is built after all. But there is absolutely no reason why we humans shouldn't try to live as long as we can. I don't want to grow old, I don't want to die at the age of 80. We eradicated Smallpox! So why not eradicate Death?! CGP Grey did a great video about this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C25qzDhGLx8
So. I liked the movie, I didn't like it's message and unnecessary spirituality and I don't think I ever have to watch it again.

Did some errands, Duolingo, texted with a bunch of people. Not a particularly productive day. Tomorrow will be different. Fun evening with my flatmates. I'm so fucking happy I don't live alone anymore.
