Its creative camera work, beautiful score, interesting characters, entertaining dialogue, and powerful actors will mesmerize you.  Your eyes will be glued to the screen as you await each next fix scene.  By the time you realize that this movie is profound and emotionally draining, it will be too late.  You’ll be an Aronofsky junkie.  By the end, you’ll be very glad you saw it, and you’ll wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who hasn’t seen it…but you may not ever want to put yourself through it again.  Masterfully done.
