What sacrifices must be made for art? What if it’s all just an illusion anyhow, a fantasy made up to cope with the difficulties of reality? Is there a way that these issues can be dramatized with a steamy lesbian love scene? These are questions being asked by Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, but they’re also part of the equally trippy Mulholland Drive, David Lynch’s intense psychosexual drama now streaming on Netflix.

Acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky's (The Wrestler) new psychological thriller, Black Swan, is set in the competetive world of professional ballet, so it's only fitting that the latest clips from the movie showcase the dancing skills of the lead actress, Academy Award-nominee Natalie Portman. Portman plays Nina, next in line to become her ballet company's Prima Ballerina in the upcoming production of Swan Lake. But, when a new dancer (Mila Kunis) catches the eye of the director (Vincent Cassel), Nina begins a downward spiral into paranoia and delusion that threatens to shatter her dreams. watch the new clips from Black Swan >> Posted 12.01.10 by BrentJS
Acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky's follow-up to The Wrestler, Black Swan, is a psychological thriller that explores the secret world of profesional ballet and one dancer's (Academy Award-nominee Natalie Portman) struggle to land the Prima Ballerina position in her company's new production of Swan Lake while attempting to maintain her tenuous grip on reality. During a recent press conference for the movie, Portman, who had danced as a young girl, described ballet as "an expression without words" and said that she "always wanted to do a film relating to dance." Portman said that the complex role she plays in the movie was one of the few that benefited from the hiatus she took from acting to study psychology at Harvard. what did portman say about ballet and training for Black Swan? >> Posted 11.29.10 by BrentJS
The first clip from acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky's (The Wrestler) new psychological thriller, Black Swan. In it, we see the fragile mental state of the protagonist, Nina (Academy Award-nominee Natalie Portman), a talented ballerina who is next in line to replace her ballet company's Prima Ballerina, Beth (Winona Ryder), in the upcoming production of Swan Lake. While being fitted for the show, Nina has a frightening hallucination, but it pales in comparison to the horror she feels at discovering that the newcomer to the company, Lily (Mila Kunis), has just been made her alternate. see the first Black Swan clip >> Posted 11.24.10 by BrentJS
