More On Aronofsky at UC Berkeley

May 3, 2003: Our new best pal 'Linda' adds a little bit on Darren's recent lecture at the UC Berkeley Campus (Check out the last update). She even included pictures. Here's what she tells us...

Basically you guys really summed up what happened. He didn't state if he was committed to Batman, but that he was doing Flicker and Lone Wolf and Cub for the future.
People asked why his movies were about suffering his answer was, "are you saying that I'm a dark fuck or are you asking if I'll sell out?" I really liked that statement.
He talked about the war on drugs. He talked about how he got into directing when he saw his Harvard roommate having fun and making movies so he decided to try it out. He also said that your mid-20's are a crucial time in one's life so DON'T live in LA. His words of inspiration for new and young filmmakers were that "passion gets over for experience" and he encouraged everyone interested to write, because people are always looking for new things.
These were the notes that I took on the back of my ticket. At the end he walked off stage to my side and I handed him my ticket so he would sign the side I didn't write on. He then turned it over and said, "what's all this? You took notes? Wow!" then he started to read some of it, and I was really embarrassed and telling him to stop. So then he signed it:
"Not true! All Lies! Darren Aronofsky."

Sounds cool!
(Thanks to 'Linda')
