the boss

just emerged from the dust bowl of burning man. it was a pretty unique experience. the last day was my favorite. not because of the big burn, but because the playa turned into a giant dust bowl. you could stare directly at the sun and it looked like a slightly bright moon. my shitty point and shoot couldn't capture it...

off to venice on wednesday. but i wanted to just share with you all the other music news i talked about in the past post. bruce springsteen wrote a beautiful original song for the closing the film. called THE WRESTLER it is a wonderful acoustic piece. makes me choke up every time i hear it. he really captured the spirit of the film and mickey's character in the piece.

Sounds like you've got an excellent line-up of musicians working on this film.

Can't wait to see it next week.

striderdemme said...

Awesome. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

m said...

that is awesome
very excited

Bernie said...

I was in attendance (the guy who trying to get the "pi is awesome" chant going) at the Dover shows. If they're any indication of how great this movie will be, I'm very excited. Keep up the great news Darren; Bruce is the best.

embauca said...

WOW! Bruce is my favorite and I love your films, good mix. Venice is being quite irregular according to the press here in Spain. Hope this helps the last minute entry of "The Wrestler" gets some help with it. Wishing to see this film in Spain. Hope it hits the theaters soon. And hoping to hear Bruce's song: now the Magic tour is over it will help with the abstinence syndrome.

I was on set during the last days of filming in March, in Dover. I was fortunate enough to be in the front row! I had an amazing time meeting and talking with alot of the actors and the many people who worked on the set, Mickeys body double, Ernest the Cat, hair & make-up people, sound people, camera people...and I can't forget hangin' out with Mickey Rourke himself inbetween scenes and matches! I learned so much from everyone in regards to how a movie is filmed, what goes on behind the scenes and so much more. Everyone on set was extremly helpful, down to earth and way cool. I loved the theatre and it's yesteryear feel and vibe. I'm way excited to see this movie! Though for a few weeks I couldn't get that Guns N Roses song outta my head..lol. I just wanted to say Thank You to you and the crew for such a fabulous experience. My best to you! Heather (www.uniquelyrourke.com)

Dave said...

Lets have a scoop, post the song on here first so we can hear it!

Toni said...

I really hope I'll be able to see this in Sweden.

Great news about the music!

Mr Aronofsky you are an inspiration in this stay alive game called "Life".
Thanks man.

I visited NYC last week and went to Cony Island. I tied to duplicate the shot of The Cyclone from RFD but theres a parking lot in front of it now.

Good Luck at the Premier, i'll be at the second screening on the 13th. Woot Woot.

RJH said...

Darren, cousin Rich H. here. Didn't realize you had been filming a movie so close to my home.

Hope the Wrestler is successful for you.

If you'd like to get back in touch, send a message to me at mwafb AT yahoo DOT com.

A Mouse said...

heh, funny, i was at burning man too (along with the other 50,000 people). definitely an interesting experience. i went with a high-end camera to capture the experience. take a look at http://www.flickr.com/photos/glub/sets/72157607043408362/ if you want to relive the moments. :)

have fun in venice.

Marv said...

Hi...
I am a young Italian fan... Your films are not so famous here, but I loved all your movies and I will remember them forever. I look forward to seing your personal idea of wrestling...
You really create art.

GOOD LUCK in VENICE.

Michael said...

Ram Jam Baby. I saw what you were going for, looking forward to seeing "TW" in NY. We will always have Bayonne, where even the Teamsters held hands.

Eoin said...

Looking forward to The Boss being part of the film. 3 Reviews have popped up online, all very positive. I had my doubts about this project )I mean, a wrestling pic? Haven't you seen Barton Fink???), but I am now officially interested.

Blake said...

We have all been reading great things about the film from a ton of different reviewers. We are all excited and congratulate you on Venice.

-Blake (The Film Critique)

embauca said...

Spanish press, who's not always very friendly with your films has surrendered to "The Wrestler" as I see in the morning papers (they say you're one of their favorites to win). Congratulations and good luck with the awards this weekend. I'm everyday a little more eager to see this one.

valentina said...

I'm in Venice now, I'm an italian journalist and I loved The Wrestler. I found it simply great, touching and powerful. I'm waiting for the results of the official competition and I hope that tonight you and Mickey will win a prize. Thanks for your wonderful movie.

Vojta said...

Hello mr. Aronofsky. How about the world premiere? I can't wait to see the Wrestler. Your movies are awesome. And Clint's music give it the right spirit. Cheers from the Czech Rep. ... Vojta.

mamoun said...

Congratulation for the Mostra price ! can't wait to see the film here in Morocco ! i love Bruce Springsteen i wander how did you manage to make him write something for you ! maybe you can tell us the story !

Lauren said...

I have no idea if you actually read these, but just wanted to say congratulations on the Wrestler. It's Lauren Miller (that would be Rothman to you). We (me, my parents, Emily, a few others) have been following you since Pi and are always excited to see your accomplishments. I wish you much success when the film hits the U.S. and can't wait to see it!

mikehedge said...

Darren, neat you were at BM. we were there shooting a feature length doc called "As The Dust Settles"

Torrey Desmond Rogers said...

Darren,

Thanks for creating beautiful works of art. It is so refreshing to have a Intellectual film maker like you around. The Wrestler was great and loved the song Bruce made for the film! I look forward to seeing more of you work with eager anticipation!

All the best to you and yours!

Generic Viagra said...

Roman Stoic philosophers and Christian thinkers who followed after them held physical health in rather less esteem. Stoics sought to free themselves from bodily concerns by philosophical contemplation, while some Christians found value in mortifying the flesh, thereby turning their thoughts to the immortality of the soul. kamagra
