#62 Darren Aronofsky Ranked List
For someone so new, with only 7 features, Aronofsky has one of the longest director threads, and reading the comments, he comes off as one of the most divisive filmmakers. Checking with the Director Ratings Project, it seems while nearly everyone have a film rated Green
or better along with a Red
title - MartinTeller has a perfect rainbow
- we tend to be favorable in our overall opinion of his talent. (Of course, this was before mother!)
I think he's one of the best filmmakers working today and admire the way he swings for the fences every time out. I can't see him working on a franchise, but he doesn't dwell deep in the arthouse either, with mid-budget projects starring big names in films he seems to have a personal stake in.
I've seen all of his features, but none of the short films that came before Pi, mainly because I really don't like Pi. (I tried a 2nd time, and found myself liking it even less.) I'll look for those short films, especially hoping to find Protozoa.
