Interview with Darren Aronofsky DEC 18 2008
The Onion AV Club has an interview with Darren Aronofsky about his new film, The Wrestler.
The more we thought about it, the more we realized the connections between the stripper and the wrestler were really significant. They both have fake stage names, they both put on costumes, they both charm an audience and create a fantasy for the audience, and they both use their body as their art, so time is their biggest enemy.
Toddler or not, I'm getting out of the damn house to see this movie.
