Dark and Creepy

Black Swan is a psychological thriller about a ballerina, Nina, who is selected to play the lead roles of the innocent White Swan and the seductive Black Swan in the ballet production of Swan Lake. The undue pressure and stress to perfect the portrayal of these roles lead her to get in touch with her dark side and to hallucinate, which proves to be quite dangerous and self destructive for her.

Except for Natalie Portman's commendable and award-worthy performance in the lead role of Nina, this film is just as dark and creepy as it appears to be in the trailer. I would not recommend wasting $12 on this one, just wait for the DVD to come out or avoid it completely unless you like watching disturbing sexual content. Director Darren Aronofsky, I want my money back!
