Black Swan 2010 ★★★★

There is one massive reason for watching this film. Natalie Portman.

This film takes you on the haunting journey of a naive and innocent ballet dancer as she embraces the darker sides of life in order to fulfil her dream role.

Black Swan will make you feel uneasy, it will shock you, it will suck you in and you not be able to look away. It is a unique piece of film- making, and it's final scene is perhaps one of the best final scenes in cinematic history.

Natalie Portman's performance is absolutely stunning and easily deserved her Oscar. The film is definitely not for everyone, but for those who can cope with it will have to respect her career-topping role.

There are part's of this film i like, love and hate! It will divide people, I didn't know what to think after seeing this film, but given time I could see how special it is. Viewing comes with a warning, but viewing is essential - if you can stomach it!

  • Natalie has an interesting take on its meaning after a conversation with Aronofsky during the filming. I'm not certain it totally holds up - it's more allegorical than psychological - but I like it as an alternative. Will tell you IRL some time to keep spoilers from here...
