Jennifer Connelly in Darren Aronofsky's mosiac Requiem For A Dream. A movie that felt like Film School 101 and was largely overpraised by most critics. Check it out only to find how talent -no matter how immature- can be glimpsed at in a messy effort. Nevertheless, it showed a true talent getting ready for the big time. Aronofsky would later make The Wrestler, the only film of his I genuinely love featuring a never better Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei. He releases Black Swan starring Nathalie Portman and filled with buzz in the fall.
