Natalie Portman's performance as a timid perfectionist ballerina is spot on and by far the best thing about this haphazard Polanski knock-off. Black Swan is a difficult movie much like Jacob's Ladder. It is also a study of Madness similar to Repulsion but not nearly as griping. This movie was better than average mostly because of its fantastic ending. It was refreshing to see a film of this depth in a mainstream theater but slighty disappointing.
