The Pestle


Ep 224: “The Whale”

February 28, 2023

We obsess over Darren Aronofsky’s “The Whale” and discuss:

  • Cinematography, aspect ratio;
  • Directing, acting and performances;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

I’d like to do a lot of different stuff. I think it’s important as a creative person to keep challenging yourself and keep doing new stuff. If you end up trying to repeat yourself it’s death. It just becomes boring and takes the passion out of it. You gotta find stories and characters that you really want to hang out with. – Darren Aronofsky
