Darren Aronofsky's BLACK SWAN
My review of the very well received Black Swan is up over at In Review Online. Black Swan continues to do really well at the box office and is collecting top ten accolades around the globe. This trend will no doubt continue when the Oscar nominations are announced where we are sure to see Natalie Portman and Darren Aronofsky's names in the lineup. I think part of the brilliance of Black Swan is it's sincerity to simply exist as a thriller. Every great scene, every great performance, every great edit, and every great narrative twist all has the same common goal: to provide an entertaining ride. The accolades and the awards are just the outcome of that commitment.
