Darren Aronofsy is great. I hope he still has a lot of emotion in his next film The Wrestler. I whould like to see him do some of his own material again.

Fav movies

Requiem For A Dream
The Fountain
Pi

You've described yourself as a whore for visuals so I think you'll really dig it on at least that level. The sets, lighting, costumes, and colors are beautiful.

The acting in the film is also top notch.

Don't get me wrong, I liked Requiem, but I just don't think it's as fantastic and amazing as people these days make it out to be.
I love Requiem. It's so dark and hopless. What I find interesting is that most of the people I know who call this their favorite were hardcore drug users the first time they saw the movie and continued to be so afterwards. I'm not saying the movie was going to change their mind about drugs or anything like but I guess they could relate to the characters on the same level.

With that said, you certainly don't have to be a drug addict to relate to them.

Hmm I'll pick it up at some point. I heard many people say the films themes are really emphasized and hammed on in a pretentious way which sounds sort of annoying, but like I said I'll pick it up at some point. I loved Requiem and think it's one of the best films of the decade so I'll give him benefit of the doubt.

Still haven't seen Pi but want to.

I sat behind him and Nicolas Cage at a Ring of Honor wrestling event in NYC last November. That's all I got.

But you're pretentious, so it's ok.

Just kidding.
