  • Excerpt: There has been much written (and that I have read) on Darren Aronofsky ’s new film. More than a few people (and critics) have found themselves disconnected from the film’s events and although I loved the film, I can perhaps see why some found it so hilarious. And while it shares some DNA with Aronofsky’s previous "The Wrestler" (2008), "Black Swan" is very much its own heady mix of psycho-drama, melodrama, body horror and obsession.

Black Swan (Blu-ray)

  • Summary: Unconventional from the first frame, The Black Swan is, if anything, a well-constructed movie that deserved the attention it has gotten. Just don’t try and pigeonhole the thing into any one style and you’ll likely enjoy the film as something unique and often powerful. The movie can look somewhat like a documentary without the overboard shaky camera bit. Aronofsky also uses his distinctive style to tell a story that has been told for ages.

Black Swan (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: If you made it this far in the review, then I’m surprised you are not wondering why I never once talked about the controversy of just how many scenes were actually Natalie dancing and how many were not.  Quite honestly, I really don’t care.  If it was lip synching, then maybe I would feel differently here, but the dancing debauchery really doesn’t get to me.  I just love the tale that this film has to tell.

Black Swan

High-Def Digest
4 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Darren Aronofsky's 'Black Swan' is a masterful psychological thriller set in the physically and mentally demanding world of ballet. It's a beautifully photographed but genuinely creepy film that harkens to Roman Polanski's early works and features an enthralling performance from the young Natalie Portman. The Blu-ray arrives with a gritty and faithful picture quality, accompanied by an involving audio presentation that adds to the disturbing overtones.
