This was quite a bit better than I remembered it being.
This really reminded me of theoriginal film. It's a straightforward story, but presented as a noir so there are a lot of scenes that may seem confusing or unnecessary from a plot perspective, but from a thematic perspective they truly drive the story.
The main thing to takeaway from this film though is the cinematography. It's just beautiful - every scene is a work of art, and could be in a gallery. If this doesn't get Deakins the best cinematographer award then nothing will.
This ones been on mind since I watched it yesterday. Aronofsky has definitely created a work of art with this film. I can see why people may have hated this based on what we got vs what the trailer advertised, but I am still satisfied with what we got.
There's a lot of symbolism in this movie and while it's very obvious what the main allegory is, some of the symbolism is still hard to unravel. I'm still not sure…
