Though visually beautiful and boasting superb performances from the entire cast, Black Swan, much like the ballet Nina so adores, falters because of its emphasis on melodramatic style over substance.

It's either the awesomest stupid movie or the stupidest awesome movie I've seen all year.

Wonderful performances and assured and audacious direction make for one of the best films of the year. Aronofsky is never afraid to take risks with the story and his unflinching direction turns out to be one of the film's greatest assets.

Black Swan offers a perfect balance between Aronofsky's more poetic works and his down-to-earth style of The Wrestler.

Mamas, don't let your daughters grow up to be ballerinas. Let 'em be test pilots, tightrope walkers, human cannonballs and such - any career safer than the business of tutus and tiaras.

An Oscar contender with class, and chills.

Though it touches on a number of genres and encapsulates several themes, Black Swan is best viewed as a horror movie - a slow creep into insanity that's touching and terrifying in equal measure.

While it wasn't quite as good as it was being out to be, it remains an interesting film with several things to like about it.

Aronofsky explores the quest for perfection in what is a near-perfect film.

Some parts are campy, some parts are creepy, but "Black Swan" lives up to its reputation. And Portman earned her Oscar.

Darren Aronofsky is a national movie treasure at this point. His films aren't really art, they're just sort of arthouse by way of funhouse.

Aronofsky is completely serious about the fever dream that is Black Swan, which is how he's able to pull off material that is inherently unserious.

Sure, it's melodramatic and self-important, but Black swan is still a thing of rare terrifying, heartbreaking, surreal, monstrous and downright orgasmic beauty

Un efectivo (y quizás efectista) estudio sobre la psicosis de una bailarina en busca de la perfección. Lo que sobresale es la abrumadora entrega física y emocional de Natalie Portman, tal vez en el rol más exigente de su carrera.

It had such an impact on me that I sat staring zombie-like at the closing credits, unable to move.
