Shame on me for not even knowing this was out.

The Fountain is Darren Aronofsky’s first work since Pi and Requiem for a Dream. It’s amazing! Beautifully shot, with a minimum of computer graphics, this movie portrayed a new vision of the human quest for immortality spanning thousands of years. Hugh Jackman plays the valiant seeker in the form of conquestidor, doctor, and astronaut. Central concepts include the meaning of immortality, bodily or spiritual immortality, rebirth, and control.

Just watch it. It’s amazing!
