This was a film that I saw when I was discovering Independent Film as a teenager, and it made a tremendous impression on me. However, I didn’t really keep up with Aronofsky and Black Swan was my first return to his work. (I lost my virginity during a viewing of Requiem for a Dream - terrifying notion, isn’t it? - so I while I kind of saw it, I’m pretty sure it doesn’t count.) Anyway, I’ve starting filling in the gaps, beginning with The Fountain. I’ll let you know how it goes.
More Fry and Laurie. Sorry, I have seasons on DVD and have been watching all day.
If there’s any good reason for developing a time machine, I propose it’s to go back in time and jump mid-90’s Hugh Laurie. Maybe that’s just me.
