Personal Quote:

I walked out of The Matrix (1999) and I was thinking, 'What kind of science fiction movie can people make now?' The Wachowski Brothers (directors Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski) took all the great sci-fi ideas of the 20th century and rolled them into a delicious pop culture sandwich that everyone on the planet devoured.

Trivia:

Contributed a message to the book Satoshi Anime Zen-Shigoto (Satoshi Kon's Animation Works), a book dedicated to the works of Japanese animation director Satoshi Kon who died in 2011. Kon had personally met Aronofsky in 2001 shortly after the release of Aronfosky's Pi (1998), and before the release of Kon's Millennium Actress (2001). See more »
