I am a huge fan of Darren Aronofsky. While his filmography is rather brief, the man has delivered the goods on multiple occasions. From his paranoid 1998 debut Pi all the way to 2010’s dark look at ballet, Black Swan, Aronofsky has made movies that are just hard to shake from your psyche. I don’t know if there is a better director for depicting self destruction, period. It says a lot that every one of his movies received a vote, but I must admit that I am a little surprised by the winner:
– Black Swan: 9 votes
– Pi: 4 votes
– The Wrestler: 3 votes
– The Fountain: 2 votes
– Requiem for a Dream: 1 vote
I was expecting the results to come down to The Wrestler and Requiem for a Dream, but the latter only received one vote! Wow. Definitely a lot of Black Swan supporters out there, and how about Pi finishing second? Nice voting guys, this was a bit of a surprise!
