I Ranked All Of Darren Aronofsky’s Films After Watching “The Whale”

Since his career began, Darren Aronofsky has been riding the line between art house and mainstream filmmaking — constantly challenging his viewers to take the ride with him, either into straightforward entertaining fare or sometimes into a bog of existential concepts.

But for Darren’s films, the trip is always worth the risk, because whether his movies succeed or fail in their mission, there is surely something interesting being brought to the table.

His movies may not be Marvel blockbusters, but nevertheless, they are always ~event~ cinema. Whether it be an old tale with a new twist (Noah), a simple narrative with complex characters (The Wrestler), or a mind-bending psychological exploration (Black Swan), there is always something to engage and surprise us.

Now his latest feature, The Whale, is hitting theaters, and Aronofsky and his film are already getting Oscar buzz. So, it seems like a great time to look back at his 25-year catalog and see how everything stacks up.

Need I mention there are 🚨SPOILERS🚨 AHEAD?!
