Anyone seen this? I have had the intention of starting a thread about this flick a long time ago... never got around to it.

There are a lot of alchemical tendencies in this film that cannot be ignored... and the Tree of Life is obviously present throughout!

I love it - and the music is purely awesome!

It is made by the same people who made "Requiem for a dream" - and it is interesting to notice the contrast between the two movies.

One made me sick, the other made me feel lighter.

Also Pi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi_(film)) and The Wrestler (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wrestler_(2008_film))... both pretty good. Pi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pi_(film)) number one though I must say!

For some reason, I liked the Wrestler the best.... weird, eh?

Well this one really hit the mark in terms of pathos for me. It had the most believable character, I suppose... odd that he was a person "playing" an icon... I think that's why I liked it. I thought he was by far the best developed character in any of Aaronofsy's movies...

I just watched this film...all I can say is that like this forum any question will have multiple answers
and one has to go with the answer most comfortable in one's heart.
