I won't deny Portman's performance is brilliant,the film itself was so odd,i doubt i'll be watching it again,i did enjoy it though.
It's a story of a ballet dancer getting the role she so desires,but as she trains brutally hard for the roll,she is told by the man in control of the play that she is too frigid and must become more sexualized,leading to more inner demons to taunt her decaying mind.
I liked that her body starts breaking up,things such as a split toe nail and strange markings on her skin,mirroring her mind as it were.
The scenes where she is clearly losing control of her mind are disturbing,but great.
Mila Kunis plays her role well too,and the love scenes with Portman may well get some men hot under the color,they are nicely done and do make a point about Portman's character finding herself and the black swan.
I am very glad i watched this,it's very well done,but there's so much focus on being odd,it kind of takes away from the story,so it isn't likely i'll be watcing it again. That said,i can see why it appeals to a lot of people,once you've seen it,it won't be easy to forget the black swan.
