Visually it's starting to show its age, but the soundtrack more than makes up for that. This is still an exemplary film that should appeal to anyone with a taste for the different.

A film like Mother! is impossible to recommend, but it's also a film that needs to be experienced regardless of appreciation.

Aronofsky struck gold with this one. Personally I still prefer Pi, but Requiem for a Dream is a much more accessible film while retaining Aronofsky's trademark style.

Black Swan sees Aronofsky back in good shape. Opinions differ, but I'm glad he left the gritty dramas alone and went back to more familiar territory.

The Fountain poster

A stunning and original fable spanning three different eras. At the core of The Fountain lies a very simple dramatic/romantic trigger, but Aronofsky builds an elaborate story around it and succeeds in giving it the necessary visual flair. It's not very subtle, then again Aronofsky's films rarely are. Exceptional film making.
