Darren Aronofsky can be a grandiose director. Think of his big set pieces: Black Swan's ballet or The Wrestler's final match. But, as with other directors, the tiny moments add up. This supercut, from Vimeo user WarmBakedBread, explores Aronofsky's movies through a particular lens: the eyes. Examining shots from six films, the supercut moves between the wide-eyed awe of Noah and the dilated paranoia of Requiem for a Dream. Even if you haven't seen any of the movies, you get a sense of the characters from each look.
