Film Review: Black Swan (2010)

black_swan-movie-1

SYNOPSIS:

A thriller that zeros in on the relationship between a veteran ballet dancer and a rival.

REVIEW:

To say Black Swaw is open to interpretation, would be an understatement. Though we really shouldn’t expect anything less from visionary director Darren Aronofsky. His films have taken bold steps over his career, though I believe that Black Swan is well within his best work while being consumable this time around.
