They would have DEFINITELY won Best Picture if they had kept the original version of this film!
Check out the video (above) in which Darren Aronofsky and Todd Barry open up about Black Swan, and how it was initially going to be a film about the minor deli manager character from The Wrestler.
After seeing Todd Barry's performance in The Wrestler, as well as his minor-but-crucial performances in New York City Serenade and Pootie Tang, we can definitely say that he would have gotten Darren plenty of Oscars!
…What? You didn't see any of those movies? You think Black Swan was good with Natalie Portman and the whole "ballet plot?"
To each their own, we suppose! We want to see the full length version of The Deli Manager! Come on Darren! If you're not gonna do RoboCop or The Wolverine, you could AT LEAST do this!
Would U watch The Deli Manager if it were a legit, full length film?
