    Meshes in the Afternoon, just an hour and ten minutes longer. I haven't seen a film movement of a completely different era so well replicated since The Love Witch made my Technicolor dreams come true.

    Darren Aronofsky: I am shook. The complex intertwining of psychology and film studies that makes up each Aronofsky film is a formula I imagine to be as simple and yet as complex and impossible as the coveted McGuffin God number which the plot of Pi orbits around.

    I love when a filmmaker discovers the perfect form of transcription from mind to movie, and this is a mind-blowing example of that.

He started to spin the top and I was like aw yay he saw his kids' faces it must be real!!!! But nope. Nope. Nope. My dreams just had to be crushed (pun not intended).
    I hate this movie, but I also…
