Black Swan by Darren Aronofsky, 2010 (R)

with Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis, Vincent Cassel, Barbara Hershey, Winona Ryder, Benjamin Millepied, Ksenia Solo, Kristina Anapau, Janet Montgomery, Sebastian Stan

In director Darren Aronofsky's psychological thriller, ambitious New York City ballet dancer Nina Sayers (Natalie Portman) lands the lead in "Swan Lake" but soon thinks her dreams of stardom are threatened by a rival ballerina (Mila Kunis). As opening night nears and the pressure to be perfect builds, Nina's obsession descends into paranoia and delusion.

I believe I liked it. Darren Aronofsky is the one that did Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, The Wrestler, Pi, in other word, he didn't make any mistake. The tension is amazing, the esthetic and cinematography are beautiful. The acting, Ok, I mean Natalie Portman is impeccable (I don't like real in real life, but she is a good actress). It is creepy, it is dark, even sensual. Troubling, to summarize.
