With mother! hitting theaters--and dividing audiences--take a look back at the Brooklyn-born director's past work, including the squirm-inducing horrors of Requiem for a Dream, the rebirth of Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler, and providing Natalie Portman with her Oscar-winning role in Black Swan.
Staff Pick of the Day
Directed by Stephen King
It might have taken the crown for Stephen King adaptations in 2017, but don't forget about King's sole directorial credit, for 1986's Maximum Overdrive, in which a strange comet passes by earth and causes all machines to become sentient and attack their users. We spend a few days with a motley crew assembled at a remote truck stop as they go to war with an electronic meat carver, a pinball machine and a fleet of exceptionally aggressive 18-wheelers. Music by AC/DC. (Available on HBO Go)
