Motion Picture Purgatory: Black Swan
It's been a long time since we've seen a genre film garner the type of praise that's being heaped upon Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan, especially in terms of awards and nominations, and we couldn't be happier about it. But does Trembles agree?
Set in the world of New York City ballet, Black Swan stars Natalie Portman as Nina, a featured dancer who finds herself locked in a web of competitive intrigue with a new rival at the company (Mila Kunis). A Fox Searchlight Pictures release by visionary director Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler), Black Swan takes a thrilling and at times terrifying journey through the psyche of a young ballerina whose starring role as the duplicitous swan queen turns out to be a part for which she becomes frighteningly perfect. The script was written by Mark Heyman and Andres Heinz and John McLaughlin.
