Podcast: Mother!, Top 3 Aronofsky-isms – Episode 239

Podcast: Mother!, Top 3 Aronofsky-isms – Episode 239

This week’s episode is brought to you by and our awesome listeners like you! Sign up today and we’ll reward with some cool incentives!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we review Darren Aronofsky’s polarizing new film Mother!, starring the great Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem. We also discuss our favorite Aronofsky scenes and how that reflects his unique directing style overall. And finally we introduce a new segment we call Question InSession, where we respond to listener questions that we elicited from social media.

Mother! is going to end up as one of the most divisive films of the decade, perhaps even this century so far. Regardless of where you land on the film, hopefully our remarks will offer insight into why the film worked or didn’t work for us, and how that can lead to more conversation.

On that note, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

Top 3 Aronofsky-isms (38:47)
Inspired by Mother!, we decided to talk about our favorite “Aronofsky-isms” – or the scenes the best reflect his directing style. Aronofsky is one of our favorite auteurs working today, with a unique vision and ability to offer poignant films despite their bleak material. There are some scenes in his filmography that are just unforgettable, and for good reason. Hopefully our lists represent how much we truly appreciate Aronofky’s work. That said, what would be your top 3?
