Directors' Shorts - Darren Aronofsky - No Time (1994)
Currently busy worrying Christian audiences worldwide with his biblical epic Noah, Darren Aronofsky made his first splash with the low budget indie winner Pi. Before that however he made a series of short films, the last of which was No Time, in 1994.
It’s a bizarre amalgam of comic moments and peculiar exercises in rhythm, with little or no sense of narrative and the most annoying game of charades you’re ever likely to come across. But it’s inventive and despite the archness of its humour at times, often very funny. Aronofsky would be the first to admit it’s not his finest 22 minutes, but let’s be honest, it’s more entertaining than The Fountain.
