Darren Aronofsky – he may look like an accountant, but you couldn’t call his career boring. First he unveils his debut picture, Pi, a sci-fi thriller made for sixty grand, and launches his career in auspicious style. He follows it up with one of 2000’s most hotly debated films, the Hubert Selby Jr. adaptation Requiem for a Dream, a hyper-stylized and brutally frank exploration of the power of addiction, which earns Ellen Burstyn a Best Actress nomination. Then things go slightly awry: he plans to get really ambitious with his tripartite sci-fi romance The Fountain, which was to star Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett as star-crossed lovers across three different planes of existence – until Pitt pulled out at the last minute to star in Troy instead, leaving frehsly built sets and a large crew in Australian dust. Undaunted, Aronofsky rewrote the film into a more modest form and recast it with Hugh Jackman – and his wife Rachel Weisz. The resulting film, shot in Montreal, got booed upon its debut and received a mixed reception, with many decrying it as pretentious and self-indulgent. Now, Aronofsky is back in Oscar’s possible good graces with The Wrestler, a stripped-down underdog story about a man and his calling – and we’re here to tell you if Aronofsky has a shot at winning his latest round
