Darren Aronofsky Directing Lulu Video

By Tom Breihan / November 3, 2011

Darren Arnofsky made The Wrestler, so he knows something about old, broken-down pieces of meat. He made Black Swan, so he knows about confusing horrorshows. He made The Fountain, so he knows about ambitious experiments that don’t quite work out. And he made Requiem For A Dream, so he knows about the sorts of bad decisions that come out of excessive drug use. And even with all that in mind, it’s still a bit of a surprise to learn that he’s directing a video for the Lou Reed/Metallica travesty Lulu.

The Associated Press reports that Arnofsky is making a clip for the Lulu track “Iced Honey.” Lou Reed has voiced the perplexing hope that the movie can be “his Black Swan,” whatever that might possibly mean. The video will be out later this month. Maybe it’ll be good? It probably won’t be good.

I couldn’t figure out a way to work a Pi reference into that first paragraph; sorry.
