Vijay's Review of Black Swan
Black Swan was on its way to being my favorite movie of the decade, but despite Aronofsky being amazing at what he does, there was one reason I did not like it as much as others did. The reason is because I think Aronofsky went to far actually showing Nina transforming into an actual Black Swan. It seemed way to over the top and everything was perfect up till then. It was alright showing minute details of the transformation but I think it could have been better if he continued to show the process metaphorically. You definitely lose all your immature machoism when you realize this is not your regular ballet movie, but a triumphant, daring, and acceptable attempt at a original story.
