Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I have to watch The Fountain again before I can decide if Noah is director Darren Aronofsky's best film.  But I can say that with this film he has cemented himself as the most daring and imaginative American film director of his generation.  

Also, somebody just hand the Academy awards for best Actresss and Best Supporting Actress to Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, because nobody is going to top their performances this year.  I have been a fan of Jennifer Lawrence since Winter's Bone, but Hermione just blew Jennifer's best performance out of the water.

I don't want to spoil the movie for anyone, and trust me on this, neither the trailers nor having heard the story from the bible spoils this movies for anyone.  Unless someone tells you what is in this film, you have no idea what you are about to witness.  

If you are a fundamentalist religious person, this movie is going to be a painful experience for you.  Everything you believe in is going to be challenged and in such a subtle way that you won't be able to brace yourself for it.  

If you are someone who doesn't enjoy fantastical movies, then just don't even bother showing up to this one, because it is a myth through and through.  

If you hate environmentalists or vegetarians, then, again, just don't even bother, cause you'll hate this film.

But if you love the other movies directed by Darren Aronofsky... Pi, Requiem For A Dream, The Fountain, The Wrestler and Black Swan... then you are in for a real treat.  This is Darren Aronofsky with $160 million dollars telling a conflicted, hopeful, horrific, beautiful, wondrous, heart breaking, challenging story that is on par with Stanley Kubrick's 2001.
