This week, The Film Comment Podcast hosts a special guest, himself a choreographer of uninvited guests on their worst behavior. A longtime practitioner of his own cinematic strain of emotional extremity, from Pi on through Black Swan and beyond, Darren Aronofsky sat for an interview to discuss his new film mother! with FC Editor-in-Chief Nicolas Rapold.

You can listen below, as long as you don’t overstay your welcome and dislodge an unbraced sink.
