Review of Black Swan

This movie will be remembered as one of the best psychological thriller ever made.  Three cheers to Darren Aronofsky. He may have missed the chance to direct The Fighter, but this one re-captured the strange beauty in his Requiem for a Dream, and the devastating redemption in the Wrestler.

The suspense, the pace of the story, the acting by Natalie Portman especially her face during the ending scenes were powerful, and even the cliché of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake music was not only appropriate to the story, but masterfully integrated into the shots.

It’s breath-taking, enchanting, tragically beautiful, and strangely true to life and beyond.
