First off, this movie probably deserves 2.75 stars, not 3, but since that's not an option, it gets the benefit of the doubt. This is a film that I think I need to see again to fully appreciate it, but, I don't want to watch it again. I also, don't quite understand how Natalie Portman won the Oscar for her role. I didn't think she was that great. This is an interesting film and one to check out, but to really get a sense of what Aronofsky is capapble of, check out Pi (1998) and Requiem for a Dream (2000).

Ambition, desire, failure, devastation.

This astounding picture comes from the man who almost never disappoints me story-wise: Darren Aronofsky. He's a bit like Batman. Ordinary on the outside, but a masterful genius when doing his craft.

Natalie Portman deserved her Oscar. The way she portrayed Nina was innocent, fragile and honest.
Especially her transformation just made her more vulnerable and ambient in her role. The constant push in the film is for her to 'lose herself' in the black swan, since she had already mastered the white one. It felt like Portman was losing herself in the role simultaneously. What started out smalltime ended up as a triumph, much like the character.

You could really tell this was a Darren Aronofsky movie, because it had all the usual qualities. The eclectic dialogue, unstable camerawork and ...

Black Swan

Yes! Another another amazing film from director, Darren Aronofsky. For me, Black Swan is the perfect example of a modern classic film. A true piece of art, astounding in so many ways. Immediately after the opening credits, the film left a tense, uneasy feeling in my gut. The atmosphere was established, and I was instantly at the edge of my seat, knowing that something was off. I was immediately taken into the film. The brilliant musical score was very effective in establishing the dark tones, as was the perfect cinematography. I loved the use of color in the film; blacks and whites dominated the color palette of the film, establishing the dark tone, but also to further emphasizing the idea of good vs. evil. The acting was excellent; stunning performances by supporting cast members Barbara...

How far would you go to be perfect?

When ballerina, Nina (Natalie Portman) is cast to play the Swan Queen, which is two roles in one Odette, the virginal White Swan awaiting a kiss from the Prince, and her heartless twin, Odile, the sexually predatory Black Swan who lures the prince away, she easily proves herself as the graceful and innocent White Swan. It is the dual role as the cunning and seductive Black Swan that proves to be the challenge especially with Lily (Mila Kunis) standing as a major threat to Nina's shining moment. She personifies everything Nina is not. A natural dancer, prepared to take risks, let go, be bad and clearly very sensuous without even trying, she plays the Yin to Nina's Yang and the movie is better because of the two sides coming together.

This fantasy drama takes you on a surreal ride th...
