              “Because we are filmmakers, we can show where a person’s mind goes."                                               
                               - Darren Aronofsky -                                                                                                                                                                                                            


One of the Finest and A Disturbing Director Of 20th Century.Although His Age is 49 , Darren Aronofsky not ready to decline the brutal reality to show the beautiful world.His First Film was pi released in 1998, which is a complex Movie.His Films are So much Disturbing and Leave you Devasted in the end.It doesn't mean he end a film with controversial or He see this world in an Sad manner.But He States that ,people mind always think through the sad and disturbing awkward situations before get into some good things.He imagined and constructed the world of that Brutal Reality.Thus Darren Aronofsky Movies are always disturbing.                                  
                                                                                                                                                  

Lets Analyse His style of Cinema                                  

                                           Although he have a different set of film with sad ending.He also not a normal director in his cinematic aspects.He Uses and Have his unique set of Film-making.Aronofsky is able to use the tools of cinema to visualize the abstract emotions of everyday experience.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
God View Shot:                                                                                                                                    

      He uses lot of God view/Bird's view shot to show that the thing can be wtch through a life's perspective.The Characters are just a members of the earth.he Used the Shot usually in the end or at the beginning.It Explains the mechanism of this Shot and his visual treat.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
Tracking Shot :                                                                                                               

    Another one amzing thing he using is tracking a character in his/her emotional stage.It Will develop a sensitivity of the character's journey.It grap the audience to look forward to go with the character.Tracking of a character from behind always show that the character is doing something to go forward /Rising.The character sort of going to do some important part in that scene.

Extreme Close Up:

A Close-up generally eliminates the distraction of environment so that a viewer can focus on the Character.Aronofsky takes it one step further. He phases out the physicality of the protagonist, and dives into the molecules making up their reality.


His Films Are Mostly Violence.

His films are never an easy watch and are often punctuated with disturbing imagery and violence.


In One of his interviews , 
He Told "I hate Violence !.
But I treat violence honestly. I never try to trivialise violence. People have no problem with violence if there is no consequence. Films are incredibly violent. In fact, all types of cinema, across the globe are filled with violence. But mostly these create a fictitious world and a version of violence. I think this actually normalises violence. It never shows what violence really does to people who perform or receive the violence. It is similar to showing guns in movies. You never get to know how loud the sound of a gun really is. Or how much damage they really do. Watch a martial arts movie and you will see a lot of violence and no blood…or a single drop of blood dropping in slow motion to the ground…as if it is some sort of abstract dance. I am not interested in that. I don’t want to make violence sexy."


From this point of view you can understand the nature of his mentality towards Visual language,Reality of Life and how his style of filmmaking emerged.
