So it’s been decided, by hip wealthy New York Smart People in co-ops presumably, that Darren Aronofsky is One Of Our Best Directors. Like, much better than (say) Brett Ratner, just to name at random someone who is considered a total hack but has actually made more movies I like than has Darren Aronofsky (to wit: The Family Man, After The Sunset).
Now, surprisingly I just didn’t like Pi that much, I have no desire to see nor can even understand why anyone would want to see Requiem for a Dream, the subject matter of The Wrestler holds no interest for me (nor does the ‘let’s all spontaneously decide Mickey Rourke is a great actor again’ received Smart wisdom), and I’ll be damned if I’m going to go and watch Natalie fricking Portman in some ballet movie.
Am I really the only person in the world who thinks Darren Aronofsky’s best and most awesome movie was The Fountain? All the same people who anointed Aronofsky a great movie director are totally down on The Fountain. It’s just messed up.
