Storyline

Amidst a wild flat meadow encircled by an Edenic lush forest, a couple has cocooned itself in a secluded grand mansion that was not so long ago burned to the ground, devotedly restored by the supportive wife. Within this safe environment, the once famous middle-aged poet husband is desirous of creating his magnum opus, however, he seems unable to break out of the persistent creative rut that haunts him. And then, unexpectedly, a knock at the door and the sudden arrival of a cryptic late-night visitor and his intrusive wife will stimulate the writer's stagnant imagination, and much to the perplexed wife's surprise, the more chaos he lets in their haven, the better for his punctured male ego. In the end, will this incremental mess blemish irreparably the couple's inviolable sanctuary? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

Darren Aronofsky submitted a written statement about the film when it premiered at the Venice Film Festival, in which he revealed that he wrote the first draft of the script in 5 days ("a fever dream," he called it) and that the idea was inspired by current events, "the endless buzzing of notifications on our smartphones," and his experiences going through Hurricane Sandy in downtown Manhattan. "It is a mad time to be alive," he wrote. He also wrote that the film should be "drunk as a single dose in a shot glass. Knock it back." See more »

Crazy Credits

The music in the first half of the end credits is followed by a long period with only quiet ambient noise. The near-silence is broken when Javier Bardem's character's calligraphy is inscribed in white ink next to (and sometimes over) the remaining credits. See more »

A beautiful roller coaster
18 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

The movie is portrayed by it's trailer as a horror film and rightly so, humanity and the themes this movie explore are horrific. I can't say I enjoyed this film, there are some difficult scenes and this is a movie like say Clock Work Orange, it will push and test you. It will make you talk and question things afterwards. This is not a casual movie to go and enjoy, it's a questionable thought provoking experience. It's rare for a film these days to evoke such thought, so many mixed reactions and to explore themes that everyone will understand differently. Outstanding acting, intelligent cinematography, just go and see it, form your own opinion.
