    There's some duality in Natalie Portman taking on the leading role of this film. Just as ballerina Nina Sayers (Natalie Portman) must learn to master the black swan in addition to the white swan, so must Portman prove that she's capable of bringing out Sayers' inner darkness. Portman delivers of course, giving an incredibly gripping and devastating leading performance. Mila Kunis gives a great supporting performance as well and director Darren Aronofsky succeeds in creating one of his most outstanding and challenging films to date. A complex film charting a woman's psychological downward spiral as she takes on the role of a lifetime.

    Psychologically thrilling and frighteningly unnerving.
    Black Swan is filled with disturbing and nightmarish imagery throughout.
    Some sequences involving Nina and her mother remind me of Margaret and Carrie White.
    Topped off with a great performances from Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis, along with haunting score.

    Belle le scene dove si leccano e toccano ma il resto non é tanto interessante

    This, right here, is pure Aronofsky. It feels like the culmination of of everything he's done to a point. Yet while a culmination, Black Swan is it's own beast. It feels like this generation's Repulsion (Roman Polanski)--a film where it becomes hard to decipher between what is real and what is insane. If you had told me the ending before I saw the full film, I'd have said "that's lamentable", but in the context it feels just right. Natalie Portman is great, as is the rest of the cast. Mila Kunis is adorable as always, yet perfect for her role. Just a bravo effort all around.

    Another one of those ballet drama horror movies. The journey of a woman unraveling as she is dealing with pressure plays out really interestingly and Portman sells it. The ballet sequences are actually well shot and having her troubles mirroring Swan Lake was a little on the nose, but still works within the context of the movie. Aronofsky uses a lot of fast editing to really sell the hectic nature of the story.

    Watching Aronofsky is like watching somebody makes ripples in a pool of water. All of a sudden, it's a wave pool. Then you realise that it's not water, it's gasoline, and he's just lit a match.
    Really good movie though!

    A ballet dancer wins the lead in "Swan Lake" and is perfect for the role of the delicate White Swan - Princess Odette - but slowly loses her mind as she becomes more and more like Odile, the Black Swan.

    While not strictly a Horror film, it has enough elements (mainly from Susperia) to include it in the titles I'm watching this month in the build up to Halloween.

    Black Swan is very good, if not quite the classic that…
