So did this end up being an Aronofsky version of the "Divine Comedy" while also being an absurdist comedy (and he and some critics seem to imply in their reviews)?

It would have been pretty demented to laugh. I didn't see much comedy in it. I guess you could find comedy in it, the same way you could find comedy in Requiem for a Dream's ending.

Spoiler:
It can sparsely be viewed as a ghost story. I think that's what most people were looking for. It's a surreal summary of creation and the apocalypse. Javier Bardem is God. Jennifer Lawrence is Mother Earth. Mankind fucks it all up (this is where the movie gets crazy). Lots of horror imagery. Mother Earth ends it and God restarts again and again.


Not really too hard to grasp. I'm positive I could watch it again and again and assign each character and moment to something specific.

Going in - I knew nothing about the movie. I actually thought it was going to be a straightforward film about some kind of cult (maybe along the lines of The Wicker Man).

Yeah that's what I've read, I won't be going in blind since I was far too fascinated by all the talk about the movie and haven't had a chance to see it yet.

I wound up skimming some guys summary of the movie, sort of Thug Notes style, and now want to see it just for the sake of seeing that visualized.
