Black Swan // Natalie Portman

I recently watched Darren Aronofsky’s The Wrestler in preparation for the impending release of Black Swan.

While Aronofsky is one of my favourite directors, I held several levels of disappointment at the WXW/WWE showdown; Rourke’s performance was quite fantastic, though stylistically I found the film bland, and missing Aronofsky’s classic subtleties of mysticism.

Not to worry though kids, since Black Swan seems to be a more promising affair – some of the finest actors of their generation, Natalie Portman and Vincent Cassel, dressed in layers of fantasy. One waits.
