Last Call for entries this week!
I’m not going to say that Devin was a mere boy before he saw Darren Aronofsky’s The Fountain, after which his manhood was bonded in cinematic bliss and newfound vigor in the spirit of the art form. I’m just not. I will say that over the next 20 years as people start to experience the sensation of the film’s quality hardwired to their spine, he’ll be able to say "I told you so" from his seat next to you at Butt-Numb-A-Thon. In twenty years Devin will be Pauline Kael with a cock and a pulse. In twenty years CHUD.com will have a legacy that’d make John Saul proud. In twenty years The Fountain will be considered a classic film in the same way that Blade Runner and 2001: A Space Odyssey are, the difference being that it’s not too late to make it a big juicy hit right out of the gate.
You are our front lines.
And because of that we are proud to tell readers in Atlanta, Charlotte, and Nashville that we have a stack of passes coming with your names [figuratively] on them.
We know you want to see it. The Fountain and Pan’s Labyrinth are the two films any self-respecting internet film fan must see as rites of passage. And Borat, which is better than the hype in my opinion.
You are our front lines. This film has been through a million hurdles and come out on the other end a champion, and it’s folks like you who can spread the word and get people to see smart and lyrical cinema instead of latest Santa Clause hellhole. Here’s how:
Using the correct link below and including your mailing address, tell me what film in your lifetime moved you the most. The one that shook your core, made you grow, or changed your worldview. If it’s Gummo, please refrain. Then, I will select a hearty few of you to be the first line of warriors in the cause of The Fountain, a film that really deserves to make impact right out of the gate. Good luck! Last date for entries is November 10th.
