one frame from each minute of the film. 102 minutes = 102 frames. Inspired by
the creative constraints that have produced projects such as Longshot!
Magazine and 50
Posts about Cyborgs,
the project aims to push the boundaries of the medium and experiment with new
ways of thinking and writing about film.
Nick has invited 102 contributors from across the film criticism spectrum to
look at one frame from each minute of Darren Aronofsky's Requiem for a
Dream, a movie that
unsettled many audience members when it was first released to theaters ten
years ago. For more about the project, check out the 102 Project's About page
