Does anyone know if there’s a Cronenberg element to this film? I mean….I don’t particularly want to watch Natalie Portman turn into a swan; but I suspect it’s a visual metaphor or something. Has anyone seen this yet?
Yes it is very Cronenbergian. And its much more subtle than The Fly.
See, if it’s subtler, that’s a good indicator. I don’t mind the Cronenberg elements, but something like The Fly seems far too….idk, obvious for Aronofsky.
Yeah, because someone turning into foliage would never happen in an Aronofsky film.
Huh. A conversation comparing Cronenberg and Aronofsky in terms of “subtlety.”
I think it’s safe to say The Fountain operates on a different level than, say, The Wrestler..
I think it’s safe to say Black Swan operates on a different level than, say, The Wrestler (much like A History of Violence operates on a different level than, say, The Fly).
