Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan," his terrific new psychological thriller set in the world of ballet starring Natalie Portman begins its run into theaters this Friday, December 3rd. It's a dazzling confluence of everything the dynamic filmmaker has created to date -- utilizing the raw Super 16mm look he employed in "The Wrestler," the supernatural elements he displayed in "The Fountain" and the immediate camera movement exerted in "Pi." Portman seems like a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination (rightfully so) and the picture already seems to be deeply impressing most critics (read our review from the Toronto Int. Film Festival).

Fox Searchlight has done such a great job marketing "Black Swan" so far, so it's disappointing to see them take such a misstep so close to the film's release.

This writer, to his eternal shame, has something of a tin ear for classical music. Generally speaking, if a piece of music doesn't have at least one chorus, or is part of a film score, we tend to glaze over a little bit. So it's a credit to Clint Mansell's work on "Black Swan," which mostly appropriates elements from Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake," the ballet at the center of the film, that after our screening, we went home and listened to Tchaikovsky fairly solidly for about a week.
