I just read about Mother, my impression is that it's the worst of Aronfvsky. Some overly symbolic thing that teenage / college boys may get into to annoy their parents and/or seem profound when they try and pick up girls. It's the Requiem of a Dream for the new generation. I liked that movie when it first came out, I'm embarrassed about that fact now.Agabus said:Black Swan was 65 percent good. The 35 percent that was bad, though, was pretty dumb.William T said:Oh I wasn't aware he was targeted in moral crusades, yeah if that's the case that's not good.Agabus said:He is overrated.William T said:The quality of his films are a bit shaky. I remember watching pi in college and liking it... after that his work is all over the place. He might be a bit overratedAgabus said:I haven't seen "Mother!", but from what I can gather Aronofsky made an Aronofsky film, and for some reason people are surprised that it's polarizing?
But he's also not as bad as his critics' histrionics would imply.
I was just thinking about a film like black swan where I wasn't sure if it was good or not. To a lesser extant Christopher Nolan has similar problems with story. I like Nolan more, but it's a good comparison.
Thanks. What boredom and 5 minutes of Photoshop can make you do.RobS said:

I think the Finnish Orthodox Church has good relations with the OCA and particulary its seminaries, doesn't have?Alpo said:
I believe that's the case. I also saw a picture of Metr. Tikhon visiting Helsinki some years back. Somewhat ironic since EP doesn't recognize their status and we're under EP. IIRC some decades ago when their then Metropolitan was invited to visit Finland EP intervened and told us to rescind the invitation. I guess nowadays the OCA-EP relations have gotten a bit better.Dominika said:

A company named Bethesda has been working on this problem for some time. Here's an image of what one of the Reptilians may have looked like shortly after it was captured in 2011:Opus118 said:I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians*. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.

I don't get it: you should confess if you broke a major dietary rule like that. There is nothing on it's own eccentric about listing that in a confession guide.augustin717 said:So an updated version of the Romanian guide for confession contains this:
"I have eaten ( made others eat) abomination ( 'spurcăciune') , that is a live animal , human meat, satanic sacrifices, uncleanliness."
