Darren Aronofsky  

“The space stuff [in The Fountain] I think was influenced a little bit by “Space Oddity” by David Bowie and that's probably why the character was named Tom.”

Darren Aronofsky, SuicideGirls.com, 2005

“Yeah, [I talked to Bowie], well not music, but hopefully a third Major Tom song. It'd be cool. He's working with Clint [Mansell] our composer. So we're talking and hopefully that'll happen. So there was that influence and then present day stuff.”

Re: Darren Aronofsky new [re: ziggfried]  

“As soon as we setup [for the film version of Watchmen], they got really excited and wanted it in the summer of '06 and I was like, “This isn't a film you can rush because if you fuck it up there's going to be a lot of angry people.” The funny thing is that when I went to meet Bowie, one of the first things he said was, “Oh, are you doing Watchmen?" It turned out that he was developing an opera out of Watchmen. I was like, “If I do this film and I fuck it up, I'm going to piss David Bowie off.”

Re: Darren Aronofsky new [re: ziggfried]  

"Ang Lee, Tom Tykwer, Darren Aronofsky are among my favorites. But there again, there really are a lot of tremendous films being made. You just have to search for them. It's always subject matter over content that leaves me cold. The subject is so often a potpourri of effect and bad visual punning against tissue thin content. No writing, no thoughtful direction."

David Bowie (when asked about his favourite current films and filmmakers), Film Threat, 24 July 2002
