Just got back from a nearly packed showing of Black Swan and it’s fantastic! Like The Wrestler (currently my favorite movie), Black Swan explores the tragic destruction of a character doing the only thing they know how.
Knowing almost nothing about the movie before going in, I was surprised (and rather enjoyed) the horror-style in which it was presented (my girlfriend nearly cut-off the circulation in my arm during the latter half of the movie!) The movie constantly surprised me, and gave a lot to talk about afterward.
Certainly one of the best movies of the year, and is quickly making Darren Aronofsky one of my favorite directors.
