    Can't say that I agree with Jon. Darren's films always hit with a lot of impact. They are not as indie as his early work (Pi for instance), but they arent pablum either. Black Swan was well conceived (perhaps even a bit formulaic) but it had original elements, excellent narrative structure, great performances, interesting visual elements, and it left viewers having been impacted. A pretty darn good film I'd say. Indies shouldn't have to be so outside of narrative norms that they arent acessible . . .
