    Darren Aronofsky firma su mejor película. La mejor porque le ha caído un guión con las particularidades e ideas necesarias para que le sea posible hacer convivir armónicamente, por un lado, su gusto posmoderno por matizar y alterar la imagen de manera esquizoide, y por otro, el proseguir con su depuración visual, impuesta desde The Wrestler. Es decir, que gracias a un riguroso manejo de la historia, se hace una conjunción coherente entre lo operístico y lo sobrio. Poco a…

    Expert at driving a tiny pin into our vulnerable little nerves, Darren Aronofsky clearly has a marvelous time cornering an unsuspecting movie audience (us) into rooting for (but really against) the frail and talented Nina Sayers, a ballet dancer coping with the stress of landing the lead role in demanding ballet director Thomas Leroy's (Vincent Cassell) new, "stripped down" (ha-ha) Swan Lake. (Cassell, by the way, is in prime scenery-chew mode, eliciting both the "want" of women and the "want…

    "The most disturbing thing about Black Swan was that I paid to watch it. The second most disturbing thing was I stayed till the end."

    I will never see this movie again.
    But that being said, Darren Aronofsky you dog.
    What Aronofsky did in this movie is quite the feat. I have never seen such an amazing final act of a movie. The entire movie was incredible set-up and the end was fantastic. I think this film has a lot to say about humanity, and the root of evil inside everyone. That all being said the movie is not for everyone because this film has…

    I watched this movie a couple weeks ago, and I'm still thinking about it. It is definitely one you read into and contemplate afterwards. I had heard about this movie from a few people, who sincerely recommended it to me due to my love of this genre of darker psychological films. That's the first thing I'll say about it. It is definitely dark. New York ballerina Nina finally lands the role of her dreams as the Swan Queen in Swan…

    8/10: Perfect cinematography. Perfect performances. Perfect direction. Perfect script. Beautiful psychological thriller by director Darren Aronofsky. A true masterpiece in film-making! It's so tense yet so powerful! Definitely one of the best in 2010.

    Darren Aronofsky is a director I've only really in the past couple of years started to appreciate. It's very easy to look as his films, well most of them anyway, as over indulgent and stylised but that's a very invalid misocnception. There are some of his films that I'm not to fussed about but none of them I'd say are bad. Black Swan is definitely one of his best films even know I'd probably still go with The Wrestler

    One of the most intriguing films I've seen in a while. It portrays mental illness amazingly well, down to some little minute changes that a mentally average person would not normally see or think about. It is a very well edited film, beautifully done to the score and ideas flowing through the character's heads. It got a little bit monotonous after a while, but the pace picked up again towards the end, and I realize why they needed to include the rather monotonous scenes to complete the story. Overall a lovely film.

    Black Swan (2010) film thoughts...I have had this film for so long and it remained unwatched until my buddy Michael reminded me in one of his video to see it. To start off, I have never seen any of Darren Aronofsky's other films, so I have no idea of his personal style. That said, I am guessing he is more of the art house type because this film screams it in the first frame. Natalie Portman plays a above average…
