Venice 2022: The Whale review

★★★★☆ Darren Aronofsky has made a career out of exploring individuals who are physically and psychologically self-destructing in the thrones of obsession. It almost doesn’t matter what that obsession is. It could be the relationship between the diameter and circumference of a circle; building a boat to avoid a genocidal flood; ballet or wrestling.
