Today Black Swanis being released on DVD. If you haven’t yet seen it, I would absolutely recommend this film. It may not be for everyone, but even if you have a passing curiosity due to Natalie Portman winning the Best Actress Oscar this year for her portrayal of Nina Sayers… you owe it to yourself to see how Darren Aronofsky brings the world of ballet into a surreal, almost psychedelic vision.
I personally have never enjoyed ballet… not my thing. But after watching this film I found myself wanting to see more… wanting to figure out what I’ve missed all these years in my avoidance of this particular art form. Have I sought out any ballets or even any ballet themed films since December? Nope… not a one. But that doesn’t detract from how awesome this movie is.
Going into any detail in this post is pointless… if you want to read my thoughts on the movie you can either type in “Black Swan” in the handy searchbar to your upper right… or follow this link to find my original review.
Again… I will stress that this movie is not for everyone. But if you enjoy movies that will make sweet, sweet beautiful love to your grey matter, as this one will… then treat yourself to something a bit bizarre. Buy it, rent it or stream it… just see this movie.
How much more black could this swan get? The answer is, none. None more black,
