A director who always makes interesting sounding films, too bad I haven't enjoyed a single one.
ooo Darren Darren, I love you Darren!!!
We can all assume that he will make Noah go crazy then die at the end of the film, right?
I'm excited for Noah's Ark.
He's like De Palma except, y'know, vastly inferior.
I've enjoyed many of his films, but for some reason they fail to hit me on a gut level.
He just keeps churning out the most bizarre, different, great films.
Master of the Psychological Pulse
He makes cliches work. I can't believe I like his movies (except Pi, which is easy to believe:)
Having only seen Reqiuem, the Wrestler was utterly boring to me, and Black Swan was a let-down by the end (too much pointless sex and didn't go where I hoped it would).
I saw him at a Meet the Director in NY. He pretentiously insulted his earlier works, (i.e. Requiem for a Dream and Pi) and went on to explain how he was making "real films" now. He said, "Those movies are embarrassing. That was another me, a kid." What the hell is he going on about? So you have Natalie Portman starring as a sexually confused minx in your higher budget film, so what? Fuck off, Aronofsky.
I'm not impressed with the amount of hate for Darrenofsky on here. He is a brilliant director, and how anyone can watch 'The Wrestler' and claim this man is talentless is beyond me.
He has some earlier student projects preceding "Pi" that should be up here.
Thank you Harry! Though "The Fountain" is my favorite of Aronofsky's, Black Swan comes only second along with Requiem For A Dream. However there's a potential that it could be even-even. Aronofsky is a fucking genius. Enough said!
