    Thoughts:
    I LOVED this movie! I saw Black Swan when it first came out in 2010 and I hadn't seen it since then. Now five years later (I can't believe it's been that long) on a whim, we threw in my blu-ray of it (I had bought it as soon as it came out back in 2010) and gave it…

    Great acting especially from Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis. They were total opposites to each other in the film.

    Watched this again for probably the fourth time, and I've always considered it a modern masterpiece. To me Black Swan to be considered a horror film, not a drama/thriller as the IMBD would say, in the mold of Rosemary's Baby. You know, the claustrophobic stare into a vulnerable woman's psyche as it descents into paranoia and fear. In this case it's Natalie Portman who portrays Nina, a ballet dancer battling her on self in order to play the role of…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Darren Aronofsky is a weird dude. I first was exposed to him in high school through Requiem for a Dream and never really watched anything else of his until The Wrestler earlier this year despite holding him in high regard. The Wrestler, it seems, is the diversion from his normal cerebral style, but Black Swan dives into that completely.

    This is the life of an artist breaking apart before it even had a chance to blossom. Truly only the strongest…

    A brilliant performance by Portman and very well directed and scored. Some of the faux-horror elements seemed unnecessary.

    WOW!

    I didn’t like this when I first saw it back in 2010 and have never had the urge to rewatch it, but boy am I glad I finally did. Full of great performances none more so than Natalie who plays a ballet dancer who grabs the role of the White Swan in ’Swan Lake’ for which she is perfect for but also needs to portray the Black Swan for which she isn’t so suited too. Cue her transformation from…
