Hi iā€™m a portuguese filmmaker and i would very much like to share my short film with you all "Dante's Desert" - here it is the youtube link -> If you have the time just leave some feedback about the film, thank you all very much for the help Chico Alice Peres Firstshowing and Aronofky rule šŸ˜‰

The comments from Aronofsky were far too brief, can't wait to hear him back on the Briefcase soon. Looking forward to Black Swan, and although I just wasn't a fan of The Fountain (even though it was extremely gorgeous) I still greatly admire his work. As far as The Wolverine, I share your concerns. Here's hoping it will be a film Darren wants to make and not one that Fox wants him to make. Also I could care less if Logan had bone claws or adamantium as long as the story and great writing is there and I think Aronofsky can pull it off. Great episode guys.
