Written by grantss. Aronofsky proves not only that he can direct a "bigger" movie, he also shows how one can do so without selling out.
To be more precise: "RFAD" is one of the most disturbing and depressing movies that came out of the US for a looooong time. Ellen Burstyn is unbelievable. Aronofskys direction is even more experimental than in "Pi" and some of his ideas, like his combination of sound and picture are really innovative and give his movie a musical feel -without creating a long music video.
