    There are not enough words in the English language to describe the praise Darren Aronofsky deserves for Black Swan. It was one of the most talked about and sought after films at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival, and for good reason – it is a masterpiece that is just as much beautiful as it is nightmarish. The film not only ended up as the best film at TIFF but the best film of the year. It also went onto…

    I know this is one everyone thought was amazing, but I honestly didn't get it. Confusing, not great acting from anyone involved I thought. They can do better anyway.

    Ingeniously balancing beauty & horror from start to finish, Black Swan is a harrowing depiction of a passion turning into an obsession which ultimately sets in motion a chain of events that results in complete self-destruction. Apart from being one of the best offerings of its year, this psychosexual thriller is also Darren Aronofsky's finest work since his 2000 manic Requiem for a Dream.

    The story concerns Nina Seyers; a highly skilled ballet dancer who is chosen as the ballerina for…

    Never would have thought a movie about ballerinas could be so intense. I saw Portman's character as a metaphor for what many method actors go through trying to get a good grasp at their roles. I thought that was genius. How Aronofsky tackles the psychological thriller aspect was amazing. He never spoon-feeds us what is real and what isn't. He keeps it ambiguous so that we understand how the character's mind is deteriorating.

    What I did get annoyed by were…

    Darren Aronosky's fifth feature film is one of the most effective psychological thrillers of the past few years, not only because it consumes you while you are watching it, but also because it does not fall into the disgrace of most films of its genre, since most of the psychological thrillers result in an empty mess where the senseless violence is notorious. Black Swan follows Nina, who becomes the principal dancer of the New York City Ballet and finds herself…

    Holy shit, that was so amazing!!!!!!

    Since that film was released, I've been extremely prejudiced about it for literally no reason. You know how it is, sometimes you just get some weird vibes from a film and you're like "mehhh I don't want to watch this" no matter how good the reviews, y'know? Also my best friend insisted that it was great and because our tastes in movies are so different, it actually made me even more reluctant to see…
