Beyond exceptional


by Darren Aronofsky
1998 / 84m - USA
Mystery, Sci-fi

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.

Rare treats

2017 / 121m - USA
Horror, Thriller

Mother is a film that is minutely tailored to allow for a thorough personal experience, while also covering themes that encompass the whole of humanity.

Requiem for a Dream

by Darren Aronofsky
2000 / 102m - USA

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.

The good stuff

Black Swan

by Darren Aronofsky
2010 / 108m - USA
Thriller, Mystery
Black Swan poster

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

by Darren Aronofsky
2006 / 96m - USA
Romance, Sci-fi
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.
