Ah well a The Fountain is one that I did like quite a lot and the allegory of the story still allowed for a well developed narrative. I felt "Mother!" Was interesting as allegory but there wasn't enough story there and watching Jennifer Lawrence get pissed off at visiting strangers for two hours was too much upset and screaming Lawrence and not enough story development. The allegory that Aronofsky intended can be taken a couple of ways including the way that he and Lawrence explain it. I took HIM not as God but as Satan (all add in the burned out house being restored) and, yes, there is the temptation of Adam and Even but HIM is the serpent. The burning of the house was Lawrence (as God) laying waste (like the flood) to the followers of HIM. That's certainly not how the director sees it but i could be taken a couple of different ways. As an allegory, I suppose it is interesting but not at two hours. The narrative is too underdeveloped to sustain such an ambitious allegory and it honestly wasn't all that complex to interpret.
