Browser, 9/6: Aronofsky’s Golden Lion!; Roger Ebert’s Favorite Movie; What Richard Linklater, Orson Welles, and Zac Efron Have in Common?

ARONOFSKY’S WRESTLING PIC IS A VENICE FILM FEST CHAMP

Darren Aronosfky, director of The Fountain and Requiem for a Dream, has just been given the Golden Lion award at the Venice Film Festival for his new film The Wrestler, which stars Mickey Rourke. 

Hopefully we’ll hear more from some of my pals who are at the Toronto fest. The movie will screen there on Monday.¬†

I spoke with Aronofsky, who is married to actress Rachel Weisz, by telephone, and then again in person, when The Fountain arrived in theaters. Here’s a link to that interview.

UPDATE: More on the awards. Wim Wenders was head of the jury!
