The Kids Talk Film: THE FOUNTAIN

On the eve of Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic, Noah, Twitch's two film loving children, Willem (age 10) and Miranda (age 9) return to offer you a couple pairs of young eyes on Aronofsky's confounding, elliptical 2006 science fiction picture, The Fountain.   They talk about making the most of your time on earth, reincarnation, supernovas, and because nobody suspects it, the Spanish Inquisition.  

Twitch has been on the Internet long enough that many of its writing staff have children old enough to understand and consume media in a way that is both raw and fresh. It might even come with an inkling of consideration afterwards -- it's true that many of us fall in love with the movies when we are very young. Thus, we are offering you the perspective of smaller children as they react to seeing classic filmmaking on the big screen.  

In the past, Willem and Miranda have discussed David Lynch's Dune as well as Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity and Stanley Kubrick's 2001:  A Space Odyssey. Many of these these episodes, including a 15 film series on Studio Ghibli can be found in the Twitch archives or at the Kids Talk Film Channel on Vimeo.
