Aronofsky’s much hyped and debated art-horror meditation on what it means for a mother to give everything in the pursuit of familial bliss is a thrilling, phantasmagorical nightmare. Fluent in the horrors and hilarity of dream logic, the Black Swan auteur hauls his audience up a Jacob’s Ladder of domestic anxieties laden with heavenly allusions, laying scenes over one another with all the escalating tension and irrationality of a panic attack. Whatever your ultimate verdict – masterpiece or allegorical misstep – this combination of Requiem for a Dream’s psychological terrors and Noah’s Biblical tone is among the most vital, not-to-be-missed movies of recent years.
