A new video looks at Aronosky's obsessive protagonists.







If filmmaker Darren Aronofsky has one key obsession, it's obsession itself. The protagonists of his features form a group of single-minded obsessives, from Natalie Portman's ballerina in Black Swan to Mickey Rourke's aging grappler in The Wrestler and beyond.

The below video from The Discarded Image delves into Aronofsky's recurring theme of obsession.




Meanwhile, here's a new clip from Aronofsky's latest - mother!, which opens in UK/ROI cinemas September 15th.
