Portman Taps into Her Dark Side to Become the ‘Black Swan’

I am sorry to generalize, but this is a fantastic film that functions as a terrifically terrifying ballerina drama. While not a horror film, this is essentially a psychological thriller about Natalie Portman going insane. Those who have a tough time not thinking ahead about what the reveals in a film will be, I am sorry if you feel I may have spoiled something (I do not believe I have), but this is a film very much about the physical and emotional stress that a character faces, as she strives for perfection. Add to that the visual intensity that stems from Darren Aronofsky’s direction, and you have another film that will easily earn a place as one of my favorites of the year.
