MOVIE REVIEW

Review by Nathan Samdahl (A)

Black Swan is nothing short of a brilliant film and easily one of the best of the year. Intense, unnerving and beautiful, Black Swan harks back to Aronofsky's Requiem For A Dream in all of the best ways (although the film also shares many thematic similarities with The Wrestler). Like many of the best films, Black Swan was a labor of love. Aronofsky began thinking about the story over 15 years ago and five years later, around the time when he was making his debut feature Pi, the first version of the script was created. Over the years the story took on new forms eventually integrating Swan Lake and that story's inherent themes and elements to best show the extreme physical and psychological downward journey that Natalie Portman's character undertakes.
