Black Swan takes you into the mind of an artist. Anyone that has ever tried to do anything artistic at a professional level, or has been around someone else that had pursued an artistic profession should get the intense fragility of the mind when one pushes themselves to achieve. This movie portrays this with excellent intensity. It takes you to the main character's duality, spawned by the duality of the artistic role she aspires to achieve. You watch as her personal life spins out of control, she loses touch with reality, as her professional achievements skyrocket.
And if that is not enough for you, there is the scene where Natalia Portman and Mila Kunis have girl on girl sex.
