  • 4 stars "I found this film fascinating yet very depressing. I'll watch this again but not anytime soon. Yes, the allegory becomes very clear early on and it follows a narrative path that is largely unsurprising because we know the story of ourselves and our beliefs; but perhaps the point was to be obvious because the warnings cannot be screamed loudly enough. Disturbing because it needed to be. I didn't find it blasphemous at all and I thought the religious interpretation - especially the denouement - quite interesting. Weird that all the spoiler reviews stay up on this page despite the policy posted here. And people! Let's stick to reviewing the films and not each other, please. We should be civil. We should be better."
  • 1 star "Boring story line."
  • 1 star "Yes I got all the allegories. Yes I got all the hidden meanings. How could I not when you are hit over the head with them! This isn't about superior intellect being needed to understand - it is about self-aggrandizement by anyone who liked this garbage. Yeah pretty high IQ here and I STILL think it was a waste of time and money. Just about the stupidest movie I've ever seen. No problem with the acting really (well some over-acting sure) but it is pretentious and overkill. The 'ideas' behind this piece of trash could be summed up in a couple of paragraphs without wasting all that time on making pseudo-intellectuals feel important because they saw some secret message. The message was - look how self-indulgent I can be and make everyone think i'm a pioneer. No Aronofsky - you're just predictably self-indulgent, and incredibly boring. It didn't make me think much except how dumb this movie was. And how gullible those who praise it are to think this person is some kind of great artist for being so absurd."
