The News Tribe » The Black Swan a tremendous movie of the year- By: Sanna Nasser Sheikh
Black Swan is a very weird and wonderful film and breaks all records of 2011. This blockbuster film is based on the ballet High Art but it’s also a lurid psycho-sexual horror movie, to how much you can except from it. It’s really a unique movie in its own regard. Moreover how to put in plain words it’s a bit mysterious? Darren Aronofsky the co-writer/director of the film already has made such type of films but this is not the similar one like that, and yet it’s also a companion piece to his last film, The Wrestler which was also about a performer pushing the human body to the limit, and it definitely echoes his former Requiem and Pi in intensity and paranoia. This movie is released by A Fox Searchlight Pictures.
BLACK SWAN stars Natalie Portman as Nina, a featured dancer who finds herself caught up with a new rival at the company Mila Kunis in a web of aggressive conspiracy. A psychosomatic spy story set in the world of New York City ballet. This psychosomatic spy story set in the world of New York City ballet. The story of the film is completely revolves around the Nina (Portman), a ballerina in a New York City ballet company whose life, like all those in her profession, is wholly devoted with dance. She lives with her mother who passionately supports her daughter ambition regarding to her profession.
The Director/ co writer, Aronofsky does an brilliant job of conveying her mental torture by infecting us with paranoia about the people around her, particularly a ballet director with dubious motives (Vincent Cassell), an domineering mother (Barbara Hershey) and a rival dancer (That ’70s Show‘s Mila Kunis). Such a thrilling stuff he creates a sluggish blazing suspenseful story that is a sharp Hitchcock-like moving suspense with cringe-inducing moments of body horror worthy of Cronenberg. Due to its high rating, Black Swan is and become a mark of item and lesson for budding filmmakers in avoiding self-indulgence.
