    He has a great catalog, pretty much all of his films are good to varying degrees (except Noah, which I just found funny in a bad way. I also haven't seen Mother, so honestly and obviously don't have an opinion there).

    Requiem For A Dream is definitely his masterpiece. That is one of the saddest and bleakest films I've ever seen, and the ending is just haunting and depressing. The score is also one of the most memorable that I've ever heard.

    The Fountain, for all its weirdness, is probably my second favorite. A story about timeless love, and is also pretty depressing. That seems to be one of his calling cards as a director and writer. He really knows how to tug at your emotions.

    Personally I think when he gets into his grander metaphysical ideas he's not nearly as good as when he sticks mostly to more down to earth drama which he does really well.

    I'd recommend Requiem for A Dream. Its a movie about Jared Leto, Jennifer Connelly and Marlon Wayans who are all drug addicts always looking to score their next fix. It's a great movie but it is depressing.

    Requiem is one of the best movies I've ever seen, it's just I've only seen it once because I'm too nervous to watch it again and then get depressed for 3 days lol.
    I like most of them though, Black Swan & The Wrestler I've seen several times.

    REQUIEM FOR A DREAM is among my top five favorite films. And watching it via 4K UHD Blu-ray is an awesome experience.

    Yep. Completely agree.

    I couldn't get into the fountain at all. Black swan was cool but not life changing.

    The wrestler though. Man what a great movie that was. No need to get weird to please the artsy crowd. Just tell a great story. And include Marissa tomei's tits.

    I almost picked Mother! since it's great, and criminally underrated. Ended up picking Requiem for a Dream, even though it's depressing as hell. It's a classic.

    I think he's better off leaving those kinds of films to someone like Malick or Tarkovsky, The Wrestler, Black Swan, Requiem and Pi are I find his best films and they all ground themselves much more in characters which I think he does have an underrated ability to craft.

    He has plenty to say about human nature in those films as well were as honestly I think his grand ideas become rather goofy.
