Hey Darren! Thanks for coming here!
I was wondering are there any specific fears, themes, or existential questions that you would like to tackle in your next film?
Do you have a secret vendetta against capital letters
Is there any genre of film that you've always wanted to explore but never got to?
As a former pro wrestler, I say you really painted an accurate picture of how the indie wrestling world works. Did making that movie change your understanding of pro wrestling?
What is one of best challenges you've been through as a writer that you thought maybe you would never overcome?
I'm dating this girl Grace. Her favorite film is The Fountain. Can you say hi to her so I look really good?
PS: The Wrestler made me cry and was perfect. Thank you for that.
What comes to you first when writing a story? Do you get big arc ideas or specific moments you want to capture in place first?
Why does mother! have an exclamation point in its title? Why is the first letter lowercase? What did you mean by this?
Would you ever do a comedy?
I know you like genre-bending. Did you like Get Out?
So is Randy the Ram dead? I mean it's implied...but I need to know.
Loving the marketing for *mother!* — How much say do you have in the tv spots, trailers, posters, etc.?
Very excited to see mother! this monday,
What film would you consider a guilty pleasure of yours?
Satoshi Kon is one of my favorite directors. While I absolutely love your original work (it really speaks to my anxiety) have you considered doing an actual remake of Perfect Blue or any of his other works?
I've been really impressed by how shrouded in secrecy you've managed to keep mother!, How did you get Paramount on board with that?
Hi, Darren, thanks for doing the AMA.
Very excited to see *Mother!* this Friday! I love your work.
My question is:
How long did it take you to write *Mother!*, from the smallest concept to the final draft?
Thanks again for this!
What is your opinion on Ridley Scott's *Blade Runner*?
