Abstract:   (5721 Views)

During 100 years of the cinema history too many poetic and artistic movies have been made based on visual, dreamlike and different world especially against the real world. These movies tend to deconstruct and to break the norms a process known as defamiliarization. This cinema is based on intuitions. The content and structural functions of the artistic cinema are to make questions and to stimulate audiences to contemplate. Therefore, documentary and storyboard movies of this kind are not the pure reflection of the reality and they discover the facts beyond the common life, nature and universe. Hence, we may use hermeneutical criticism, philosophical criticism, typology and linguistics to understand this type of cinema. This cinema is based on visual language and the dialogues has main role in it. The artistic, poetic cinema’s admirable efforts are about innovation, breaking the norms, empiricism, deconstruction, and including philosophical illuminating massages and concepts (in the vast and the positive way). Darren Aronofsky used the world of dreams, myth, legends, and rituals as the sources of inspiration in poetic, artistic movie “The Fountain”. Love, beauty, worship of life, glory of nature, redemption, the criticism of violence, ontology, showing the pains and happiness and feelings of the human being are the content and the idea of this movie; moreover, this film includes the philosophical, theosophical, anthropological, psychological, mythological, and allegorical substrata.
