Though I will add that I never got the blind faith for Aronofsky. He may have been a highly acclaimed director, but there was still every chance that he could end up being another Ang Lee and show that this genre maybe isn't his for him. Even with some of the details of the alleged script I thought there was plenty of room for doubt.
AB had a list of directors he deemed "visionaries" that could do no wrong. Aronofsky must have been one of them.
