A nightmarish sequence from The Exterminating Angel The Los Angeles County Museum of Art presents "In Person With...Darren Aronofsky." The director of Pi, The Fountain, Black Swan, and Noah has selected Luis Buñuel's The Exterminating Angel (1962) as the topic of discussion, along with his own films and career.
