I love Darren Aronofsky
Ever since I first discovered him in high school thanks to "Requiem For A Dream," I was hooked. That movie is as dark as anything I have ever seen, but it gets under my skin every time I watch it. Same with "Black Swan" and parts of "Pi," Aronofsky can make brutally dark movies, but still find the beauty in all of it.
Not that all of his movies make you feel like crap afterward. "The Fountain" and "Noah" are both largely underrated motion pictures, filled to the seams with beauty and bombast. Declarations of love in all its forms. But let's face it, the best avenue to travel with Aronofsky is horror and he may have hit a homerun again.
"mother!" is coming out this fall, it stars Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer and Ed Harris. It looks like some very terrible things are happening to Lawrence, but its unclear what they are. I have talked before about how I hate it when commercials show the entire movie in one trailer, it takes so much away. Here, not so much.
"Black Swan" and "Requiem For A Dream" really freaked me out, I hope I can sit this one next to those two!
