An Evening With… Darren Aronofsky


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Includes a conversation with writer / director Darren Aronofsky

Lead Sponsor: Hollywood Foreign Press Association

Does writer / director Darren Aronofsky seek out controversy, or does it just manage to find him? Given that his first film was 1998’s "Pi," which he followed up with the 2000 adaptation of Hubert Selby’s novel "Requiem for a Dream," and a group of movies that includes "The Fountain," "The Wrestler," "Black Swan," "Noah," and, just this year, "Mother!," the answer to the first question would seem to be… well, it’s probably “yes” to both. The filmmaker has often used genre settings—be it the thriller, the melodrama, or even the Biblical film—to deal with protagonists who are barely maintaining a grip on sanity from the start, a proposition that becomes more and more tenuous as the stories progress. For this first edition of An Evening with… of the season, Aronofsky will pick a favorite film and discuss it, and his career.
