Aronofsky assumes his audience is too stupid to understand his incredibly simple metaphors, so he destroys his own work by over-explaining his ideas in the most grating ways possible just to ensure we know how smart he thinks he is.
One of the most rattling movies I have ever seen. Bloody, horrifying, violent, dark, full of suffering, and then the very earnest connection that occurs in the wake of that suffering is surprisingly affecting.
Absurdist and deeply rooted all at once, a collection of visual poems. Beautiful, touching, lonely, connective, marching on. Looking at humanity from a birds eye view, finding beauty equally in its humor and in its bleakness. Loved it.
Nostalgic, funny, FUN, wild - this is what a trashy 90s slasher should be. It takes me right back to watching this at a sleepover after it released at Blockbuster. Incredible atmosphere, solid narrative, a joy to rewatch.
