    This is from the movie's Wikipedia page:
    Ledger's death one-third of the way through filming caused production to be temporarily suspended.[1] Ledger's role was recast with Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell portraying transformations of Ledger's character Tony as he travels through a dream world.

        Never mind then. Thought I had read were he was a secondary character that didn't even come in until halfway through the movie. Guess I read false info.

          • Just rented & saw The Fountain last night, am I alone in this but was Aronofsky heavily channeling the storyline from Arthur C. Clarke's novel basis for & Stanley Kubrick's brilliant cinematography for 2001: A Space Odyssey? It's all 100% Aronofsky, he wrote the script & directed it, but there is a strong 2001: ASO influence.

            Lots of the staging, dramatic irony, revealing an eternal enigma on the meaning of life, & whole scenes of it seem like they were lifted right out of 2001, which was a film classic but 1968 was a helluva long time ago.....the one-liner taken from a review on the DVD box said it was heartbreaking & mind-blowing at the same time, & that is certainly true. 2001 was state of the art for its FX back in '68, this is several generations of CG afterward.

            Profoundly thoughty, philosophical highbrow film, I give it 3 stars ***.

                  I enjoyed Reservoir Dogs more the second time. It's definitely worth giving another shot.

                    Reservoir Dogs is light-years ahead of Jackie Brown.

                      There's no question the Dogs is much better than Jackie Brown but I think JB is underrated. Of all the Tarrantino movies, its always viewed as the biggest flop but I like the storyline and the characters were very good. It wasn't a great movie but it was definitely entertaining.

                        This man knows. To be perfectly honest, Ive seen Reservoir Dogs more times then Pulp, because while it may not be as impressive cinematically, I find it to be a more enjoyable watch. Mr. Blonde is awesomeness.

                          Watched that last night.

                          Masterpiece.

                          I have to watch Donnie Brasco again to see which performance I prefer of Depp (Not really a fan of his makeup soaked performances, or really anything with Burton's name on it). Blow is definitely one of my favorite movies though. Not quite on the level of Scarface or Goodfellas, but damn close.

                            Scarface is not in Goodfellas league. Overrated. Good, but way overrated.

                            • Blow is definitely good. I dont know if Id call it a masterpiece, nor do I have it as one of Depp's more powerful performances. Hes quite good in it, but you are talking about someone who gives a knockout performance in almost everything hes in. As far as his best performance goes, I love him in both Ed Wood and the first Pirates of the Caribbean. Say what you will about the latter, but its wildly entertaining and is one of the most pleasant surprises Ive ever had walking out of a theatre.

                                I despise Scarface so I agree that it's overrated.
