She was just amazing and her depth! But, things start turning strange and Nina comes face to face with some of her darkest fears. Portman IS the highlight of this film. Comfort is not in the emotional vocabulary of this film. If this is what the world calls a good movie I seriously wonder what the hell is in the water these days!
Natalie Portman deserves an Oscar for her amazing performance.
Natalie Portman steals the screen for the majority of the film, brilliantly portraying the fragile ballerina Nina Sayers. They are simply the usual manipulations of the audience employed by There are very disturbing sequences throughout this film of putrefying flesh and violated bodies, and these images do not make sense, either psychologically or artistically. The best movie I've ever seen. Black Swan makes Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 look like best picture of the year--I say this because I thought the Potter movie just might be the worst movie of Darren Aronofsky's latest film, soon after his fantastic movie, "The Wrestler", is a thrilling joy ride that keeps a swift and dramatic touch throughout the film. Aronofsky's direction kept me constantly on edge and Black Swan is one of those all too rare films these days where you are never quite sure where it is going. As a man, even the lesbian scene was just sad and I kind of laughed through most of it due to just how unrealistic this movie is.
