The Sounds of Darren Aronofsky: A SuperCut

Award-winning, Harvard and American Film Institute-graduating, Rachel Weisz-marrying director Darren Aronofsky is pretty great at making movies. With the possible exception of 2004’s The Fountain, all of his films have garnered enormous critical acclaim—from Sundance to the Oscars—and through this time he has developed a particular filmic style involving rapid cuts, fast motion, jump cuts, and emphasis on montage. The other key, oft-overlooked component of these distinctive movies are the isolating prominence on sound effects.

And it’s no large secret that the Airspace loves to cover supercuts, from the Call Me Maybe video to end all Call Me Maybe videos all the way to Tarantino films shot from a low angle. And while covering the Men in Black/Moonrise Kingdom mash-up trailer today, we discovered that the same Youtube supercut artist that brought us that aforementioned Tarantino cut has a new video.

It is called “Sounds of Aronofsky,” and it highlights the amazing and meticulous sound editing throughout his career. The overall effect furthers Aronofsky’s isolating goals, creating a disturbing sense of reality and hyper-awareness of one’s place in the world. Watch it, hear it below.
